How to register

Returning students

You can register online for most courses through WebAdvisor. Log in to your WebAdvisor account and look for the Registration section on the Students Menu.

If you’ve taken a course with us some years ago and are just returning, you can check here to see if you’re eligible to register online. If not, please use the paper registration form for the appropriate semester (in the left side bar under "Files for download").

New to Regent?

If you’ve just been accepted into a program at Regent, and you’ve confirmed that you’re coming, you should be able to register using WebAdvisor.

If you’re in WebAdvisor but can’t see the correct link to register for the upcoming term, we may not have finished processing your confirmation. In that case, please submit a paper registration form for the appropriate semester (in the left side bar under "Files for download").

If you’ve never taken a course at Regent before and aren’t admitted to a program, use the paper registration form for the appropriate semester (in the left side bar under "Files for download"). The one exception is distance education. For distance education courses, you can register online using this web form.

Add, drop, or change a course

distance education courses

Distance Education courses offer you flexibility in your study schedule and provide you the opportunity, particularly when studying from a distance, of integrating your learning within the context of your own vocation. The courses mirror on-campus course offerings:

  • You hear the same faculty lectures, and typically receive the same instructional materials, as were given in an on-campus version of the course;
  • you have the opportunity to interact online with an instructor or tutor; 
  • you complete similar assignments as those given to on-campus students which are then assessed by a qualified grader. 
View Distance Education Courses

Each course has a six-month time limit. You should be aware of the Residency Requirements for your program, which limits the number of courses you can take through Distance Education.

Credit or audit?


Taking a course for credit means you will complete all assignments and be graded. You can use these credits towards a diploma or degree.


Taking a course for audit means you will attend the class for personal enrichment only. You do not need to complete the assignments, and you will not be graded.

Credit hours

Most Fall and Winter courses are offered for 3 credit hours. Spring and Summer Session courses are typically offered for 1, 2, or 3 credit hours depending on their length. For example, one-week courses are normally 1 or 2 credit hours, and two-week courses are 2 or 3 credit hours. Some exceptions do apply, so you must check the specific course you're interested in for details.

The reason why courses are sometimes offered for a choice of credit hours is to give you more flexibility. If a course is offered for variable credit hours, you can choose to earn more or fewer credits, based on workload.

In some evening and weekend courses, at the discretion of the instructor, a 2-credit-hour option may also be offered.


Each credit hour corresponds to approximately 45 hours of work, in the form of class lectures, readings, and assignments.

Course numbering, prerequisites, and other considerations

Course Numbering

4-letter abbreviation identifying the discipline (e.g., APPL for Applied Theology).


 500-level basic introductory courses, some of which are prerequisite to higher level courses.
 600-level usually more advanced and focused than 500-level courses and generally assume the completion of some theological studies.
 700-level generally reserved for seminars, senior courses, and major projects in which a high level of independent work and methodological skill are assumed.  


Prerequisites, corequisites, and courses recommended to be taken beforehand (if any) are indicated at the end of the course descriptions. If you lack a prerequisite for a course, you need the permission of the instructor to register. If you lack a recommended course, you will be permitted to register, but you should be prepared to do additional work in the course.

Priority Enrollment

Enrollment in all courses is limited; most courses will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Enrollment in some courses is priority due to the nature of the course (e.g., seminars); a list of these priority enrollment courses will be published with the registration information prior to each term (in the "Files for Download" section of this webpage). Priority in these courses will be given to those students who need them for their program.

Frequency of Course Offerings

Course offerings are determined year by year, based on the needs of the curriculum and the availability of faculty. Our courses are grouped in the following manner:

  • core courses guaranteed to be offered each year since they are required in a program or a concentration
  • elective courses that are offered regularly, although not necessarily every year
  • courses offered through distance education

Curriculum changes

Courses and programs undergo regular review by the College and are therefore subject to revision. A detailed schedule of upcoming courses and course syllabi is published in advance of each term on the Course Schedules page. Every effort will be made to inform students ahead of time of curriculum changes; however, it is possible that some changes may be made about which it will not be possible to provide advance notice.
