Acknowledgement of Admissions Policy and Certification of Answers Given
By checking this box and submitting this questionnaire, I certify that I have reported my grades to the best of my knowledge and understand that Regent University may use this information to determine my eligibility for admission prior to the receipt of my official transcripts at their sole discretion. I acknowledge that it is the policy of Regent University that all applicants must submit official transcripts from all colleges and high schools attended, and any decision of admission afforded to me does not change the transcript requirement. I understand that my official transcripts will be used to confirm all self-reported grades and other course information provided here, and any false statements made by me in the self-reporting of my grades may invalidate further consideration for admission or result in rescinding of the offer of admission, if applicable. I further certify that all of the responses in this questionnaire are my own work, without the assistance of others.
By checking this box, I indicate that I have read and understood the following:
Regent University's M.A. in Law program does not qualify graduates to sit for a bar exam, practice law, or provide legal advice. This degree is not equivalent to a Juris Doctor, and possession of the M.A. in Law does not guarantee admission into any J.D. program. This program is designed to evaluate legal issues in several areas and offers an astute legal perspective to those you lead and serve. The M.A. in Law degree was designed to expand the skills of professionals whose work may benefit from legal knowledge without requiring a Juris Doctor.
