Degree: Psychology

Don’t go to this school. You’ll def regret it. And by the time you do you’ll be so far in that transferring would be difficult. They lie from the beginning about how soon you’d graduate. They don’t help you take courses that are geared to your path and what you want to be and do just what brings them money.. They lie about the scholarships and the availability of them. The disability department doesn’t help. And don’t let them know your experiencing homelessness/disaster of any kind and need extra... Read More

Degree: Legal Studies

I transferred to Regent after receiving my Associate's from Tidewater Community College. I normally don't write reviews, but I had to write this one after reading the other reviews. After I retired from the military I went to work overseas as a security and training contractor. I was gone so much and so often that my only option was to take classes online. There were a couple of classes in my degree field (Government/Pre-Law) that were offered on campus only, which caused me to skip a couple of deployments,... Read More

Very disappointed with the school business practices. I was three classes away from graduating with my Masters when I received documentation that I will not be receiving financial aid to not meeting "SAP" requirements. Was informed I was in my degree plan too long. Mind you, I changed majors after (1) year, achieved a different degree within (3) re-enrolled back into the program and was informed that I'm not eligible for financial aid as a senior with "3" classes left. How can time be counted against... Read More

Degree: Performing Arts

school includes many excellent and supportive professors, however, the school limits your to standard practice. The entrance forms ask you if you are a Christian, but they do not for any level of commitment to religion. Such commitment will develop during the learning process as everything is integrated and steered towards one expectation where original thought becomes isolated. Every assignment includes biblically inclined content that ignores those who do not have the ability to fall into such... Read More

Choosing to attend Regent University was one of the best decisions of my life! The close-knit Christ-centered community on campus is like nothing I've ever experienced. Regent is small enough that it's easy to get to know almost everyone on campus. The students and faculty here are far nicer and more personable than anywhere else I've been before. I also really appreciate that all the classes are taught from a Bible Worldview. Regent is one of the only colleges in America that is solidly conservative... Read More

I'll start this review by explaining that I am Active Duty military and all of my classes my be approved in AFVEC and funded by tuition assistance through the base education office. Regent University is not my first school, I completed three years of consistent, online education and had none of the issues that I am about to blame on Regent.

Degree: Performing Arts

Online grad student in two departments because I changed my major. Instructors were OK to good. Admin was a nightmare. This school doesn't have to resources for the number of students it tries to maintain. 30-45 minute waits for a admission/ FA counselor on the phone who talks to you like a used car salesman and then says "Sorry, can't help you," and the business office won't even talk to you. Very poorly run school.

Degree: Divinity

Where do I begin? I was an online student in the MDiv program, and it was the worst experience of my life. Each class is crammed into 8 weeks when it's clear most classes were meant to take a semester. When I asked for extensions on my assignments, I was never granted enough time, because there are no breaks between terms, and I had to finish my makeup work in addition to my new classes. There was never enough time. The school advertises its online courses as convenient, but it hasn't actually been... Read More

Degree: Counseling Psychology

Just starting my third year, and I have mostly good things to say. Instructors are knowledgeable, classes are appropriately difficult (except stats. That one's a nightmare though the instructor is top notch. There's just so much material!). And the program is trying hard to move me along to the next stage. I'm a self-starter, and this program has a lot of opportunity for people who don't need hand-holding every step of the way. The only really hateable part of this program is the insistence on "discussion... Read More

Degree: Communications

I applied to Regent University thinking it would be better compared to the regular universities I attended. I was wrong. You get several of the same classes with different names, but with the same work as a credit. I was dismissed due to having a year of Job due to Covid, and no matter how many times I tried to appeal, I was told it was incomplete. Rest assured, once dismissed you are not a profit to them, they don't answer emails and carry a sense of disdain if you speak with them. Don't waste your... Read More

A GARBAGE SCHOOL Nothing but a nightmare from the get go. For registration, they had several boxes to check in one section regarding financial aid. There was no spot to check VOC REHAB. Therefore, I couldn´t register. Over 15 phone calls and emails and no corrective action taken, yet daily, I was bombarded with register or you won´t get in this semester. I finally sent a heated reply and as I found out is typical when you point out their abject failures, "Yo aren´t a good Christian." I accepted that... Read More

Where do I even start here? If you are looking for a secular education, Regent is not the school for you. If you're looking for an education that doesn't actively insult and mock your beliefs, Regent is not for you. Unless you are a zealous Evangelical Christian, you will not enjoy Regent University, and even then the amount of religion that's directly inserted into the education would leave a sour taste in anyone's mouth. If you are not a zealous Evangelical Christian, you will find that your beliefs... Read More

I am an online student. Regent University, where to start? I am currently a Senior at Regent; I am using VA Vocational Rehabilitation Chapter 31. I will start with the military aspect of the school. I am not sure if it is my Voc Rehab counselor fault or the school's military advisors, but 90 credits later, I am still paying for books while both sides claim the other is at fault. I have missed semester check-in twice due to slow billing. It was a good thing they held my classes. I currently have a... Read More

I went to this school online and it was just too much religion for me. Religion was injected into every assignment and every conversation, and I'm saying this as a Christian. The 8 week course load for the Master's program is also extremely challenging, for a program made for people who have families and work full-time. I really don't understand how you can even work full-time while taking an 8 week course load. Slip up on one assignment and it's a downward hill from there. And then don't get me... Read More

Regent University is a great college and graduate school. The professors push the students to be the best they can be. You’ll definitely walk away from Regent having learned your money’s worth and be able to use your education in the marketplace to earn a great living and make a difference.

Excellent online program. I obtained an EdS degree in a little over 2 years. The professors gave excellent input into my learning. The online courses are well designed. Chosen textbooks were very educational. Advising was excellent and Spirit led. Christian ideals are interwoven into classes. Professors respect Christian ideas and will never undermine your faith as professors do in secular schools do. The school is very diverse in its student population.

Though Regent University claims to have a strong Christian foundation, they actually just worship the almighty dollar. They care more about how much money they have coming in than they do about providing a quality education. Of course, if you're looking for a degree that you will be ashamed to put on a resume, Regent is the school for you.

This is a great school! During my engineering time there, the professors were very caring and made sure you received quality instruction. My dissertation chair was very responsive and encouraging. This is a Christian University grounded in the Word of God and committed to excellence!

Highly recommend you find a better school.

Degree: MBA in Human Resources

The MBA program at Regent was a horrible experience, especially if you plan on using military benefits. There are hardly any on-campus classes, and only online classes available during the summer, so youll rarely receive your full housing allowance. If I had known this, I would have gone to ODU instead. The courses are only 8 weeks long, which may sound great, but they assign a months worth of work in 2 weeks. You learn nothing of value at the end of your 8 weeks because youre just rushing to get... Read More

Regent University is one of the best universities for Christian Studies. Although the university offers most career choices the religious studies program is outstanding. The class choices were vast and exceptional for those entering into the ministry of Jesus Christ. I learned from some of the best and brightest professors.
