  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
Regent University is an incredible university with a genuine faith filled atmosphere. The school's motto is Christian leadership to change the world. Come here to grow.
Austin
Two important factors in my choosing Regent were convenience and Christian atmosphere and my first semester here has been better than I imagined. The Christian atmosphere is great with friendly students and professors (and other staff!). Regent has been a setting for my growth in faith this past semester (through in/out of class discussions, friendships, and other experiences) and of course academic study.
David from Virginia Beach, VA
Regent University has a fantastic online degree program whereby non-traditional students can obtain a degree without ever having to set foot on campus. The online program is a US News and World Reports top 100 and provides challenging courses and coursework to all students. Additionally, Regent has lowered their tuition in order to make higher education more affordable for everyone.
Stephanie from Richmond, VA
Regent University has displayed professionalism throughout the application process and during my first year of school. The university not only teaches excellence, it practices it through it's staff and faculty. Regent sets a standard for others to follow.
