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.
