Before each term, you will need to register for a new set of courses. To register, log in to your REGIS account and click on the Registration menu.
How to register
You can register online for most courses through REGIS. Log in to your REGIS account (using your Regent Login) and look for the Registration menu.
If you’ve taken a course with us some years ago and are just returning, you can register online once you have a Regent Login. For information about how to retrieve or apply for a Regent Login, see our IT Helpdesk site.
New to Regent?
If you have applied for a program at Regent, you can register online through REGIS, using your Regent Login. If you haven't yet been formally admitted, you'll be limited in the number of courses you can take each term.
If you’ve never taken a course at Regent and have not applied for admission to a program, you can:
- register in-person at Reception, or
- download, print, and submit, at the reception, the paper Registration/Course Change form for the appropriate semester (in the left sidebar under "Files for download").
- alternatively, you can also send the Registration/Course Change form completed as a PDF file to email@example.com; or by fax at 604.224.3097.
If you aren't eligible for a Regent Login, you can:
- register in-person at Reception, or
- download, print, and submit the Distance Education Registration Form for the appropriate semester (in the left sidebar under "Files for download").
Who can take courses at Regent
If you want to take a course at Regent for personal enrichment, you don’t need to apply to a program. You can simply register directly for your course.
You have two choices: you can audit a course or take it for academic credit. “Audit” means you don’t need to do any assignments, and you won’t receive a grade. You can simply enjoy the lectures and follow along with the readings, without the pressure of papers or grades. And you can take as many courses “for audit” as you would like.
If you plan to take courses for academic credit, you can take up to 12 credits total (maximum 6 per term) before needing to apply to a graduate program at Regent.
Anyone with a bachelor's degree can take courses at Regent. If you don’t have a bachelor's degree and you want to take a course for audit, you need to be at least 23 years of age OR to have completed at least 50% of the credits required for a four-year bachelor’s degree.
If you decide to take courses for credit, and don’t have a bachelor’s degree, you must be at least 28 years of age.

Register for a Course with Special Requirements
Most courses are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Some courses, however, have special requirements.
Christian Thought and Culture
Christian Thought and Culture I (INDS 501) in the Fall term, and II (INDS 502) in the Winter term, both have mandatory associated tutorials. To indicate your time preference for a tutorial, you need to submit a CTC Tutorial Request (along with your Fall registration) by the early registration deadline. Tutorial groups will be posted on the Moodle site and outside the Chapel before the first lecture.
You are strongly advised (i) to take these two courses in order, in the same academic year, and (ii) to remain in the same tutorial group in both Fall and Winter. If for some reason you need to begin with CTC II, you should submit a CTC Tutorial Request form along with your Winter registration.
Courses with Prerequisites
Some courses have prerequisites, and some have recommended prior courses. If you lack a prerequisite, you will not be able to register for the course in question; if you lack a recommended prior course, you will be able to register, but you should be prepared to do additional work in the course. The list of courses with prerequisites or recommended prior courses is published with the Timetable for Fall and Winter courses, and can be found in the Summer brochure for Summer courses.
Courses with Priority Enrollment
Courses that both have a limited enrollment and are required for a program (e.g., seminars) are typically filled on a priority basis. If you want to take a priority enrollment course, you must register by the early registration deadline, and you must submit a Priority Enrollment Course Request along with your registration. Priority will be given to students who need the course for their program. Class lists will be set in the week following the early registration deadline; you can check your registration status for these courses online through REGIS.
Courses with a Practicum
The following courses have a practicum associated with them:
- Supervised Ministry (APPL 693, APPL 694)
- MA Field Education (APPL 691)
- Marketplace Theology Field Immersion (APPL 692)
- World Christianity Field Immersion (APPL 690)
These courses each run for eight months, September through April. You need to register and pay for them in both Fall and Winter, 1.5 credit hours each term.
Check the course syllabi for all meeting dates.
Register for a final project
Visit the Final Projects page to find information and forms on registering for your thesis/IPIAT or comprehensive exam. Final projects are not available for online registration at this time.
Once you have completed the project registration form and obtained your supervisor's signature, you can submit this form together with your regular course registration form (or course change form if you've already registered for courses in the same term) to Reception.
Note that final projects have special registration deadlines and refund policies.
