Transfer Credit Policy

Students admitted into the doctoral or master’s degree programs in the School of Communication & the Arts may request that graduate-level coursework completed at another accredited college or university be applied toward their degree at Regent. Read about our generous transfer policy.

Joint Degrees

The Joint Degree program at Regent offers students an opportunity to subsequently earn two master’s degrees from different Regent areas of study, for example a master’s in communication or theatre alongside a master’s in business, divinity, counseling, government or education. This may reduce the overall number of credit hours required to earn those degrees.

Admissions Events

Attending a Regent admissions event or webinar can be one of the smartest things you’ll do as you plan to pursue your degree. Our on-campus and online events will help clarify your goals and calling while answering your questions about more practical issues like the admissions process and financial aid.

Students are encouraged to be both practical and creative when planning out how they will fund their studies. There are many forms of financial aid available ranging from third-party scholarships, low-interest federal and private loans, university scholarships, grants, employer reimbursements, and others. Make sure to do an exhaustive search to discover which of these, or combination of these, will help you to determine how to pay for graduate school and arrive at your goal. No additional application is necessary.
