Returning and Admitted Students

If you’ve taken a course at Regent in the past or have applied for admission to a program, you can register online through REGIS, using your Regent Login. Log in and look for “Register for 2015SUR” in the Registration drop-down menu. To retrieve your Regent Login details, visit our IT Helpdesk website.

Note: If you have applied for admission to a program at Regent but have not yet been formally admitted, you can still register online through REGIS. You will be limited in the number of courses you can take for credit.

Payment of Fees

For each course that you take, the deadline for full payment of the balance of your fees is due on the first day of class unless otherwise noted on the Student Contract. Late payment fees will begin to be assessed if fees are not paid by this time. You may pay the balance of your tuition in advance to avoid lining up at Reception on the first day of class. Payment may be made in Canadian or US funds. You may pay by cheque or money order through the mail, by cash, credit or debit card if you can come to the College in person, or by credit card if you log in to REGIS to pay online. If you prefer to pay in US funds, please contact Student Accounts for the current rate of exchange at 604.224.3245 ext. 315 (1.800.663.8664).

When you registered, a $35 non-refundable registration fee was charged to your student account. Your $100 registration deposit will be credited toward the tuition fees of the last class that you will take during this year’s Summer Programs. Refunds will be made only when notification of dropping a course is officially submitted (please see the Course Changes section below). If no such notification is made, we will consider you to be in attendance and you will be responsible for the fees in full.

Course Changes

All course changes must be submitted one of two ways:

Drop Fees

Course drops incur a $10 fee for each drop request submitted. There is no fee to add a course, or to change the number of credit/audit hours you’re registered for in a course.


After your course change has been processed, you can view or print an updated Term Invoice and Account Statement from your REGIS account.

Refund Policy

Refunds will be given according to the schedule noted on the Student Contract. To request a refund, please submit a Student Account Overpayment Form. Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for refunds to be processed. All deadlines are at 4:30 pm on the days indicated and are strictly upheld.

Tuition Benefits

Alumni Seat Sale (also called "Graduate 50% Audit Benefit")

Graduates of Regent College enjoy an automatic 50% off their audit tuition for unlimited courses. See the Tuition Benefits Application (found in the Summer 2015 Registration Form, available on February 25) for further information and to apply.

Mary of Bethany Language Fund for Ministers

This fund is for individuals in full-time vocational ministry (church, parachurch, mission organization, etc.) who wish to participate in a biblical languages class. Funds are not available to full-time students, or to students applying to Regent for full-time studies. Applications for the Summer language courses are closed, but applications for Fall and Winter language courses will be accepted until all funds are disbursed. For more information and to apply, visit the Scholarships and Bursaries page.

Audit or Credit

Taking a course for audit

This means that you will attend the class for personal enrichment only, you do not need to complete the assignments, and you will not be graded. You will, however, gain most from the course if you complete the assigned readings.

The cost to audit a course is calculated as follows: if a course is offered for a variable number of credit hours, the cost to audit the course reflects the lower number of credits. For example, if a course is offered for 2 or 3 credit hours, then you will register and pay for 2 audit hours. The audit price for each course is listed next to the course description.

Taking a course for credit

This means that you will complete all assignments, be graded, and can use these credits towards a diploma or degree.

  • Credit hours: Spring and Summer courses are usually offered for a choice of credit hours. You can choose to earn more or fewer credits, based on workload. 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.
  • Workload: Each credit hour corresponds to approximately 45 hours of work, in the form of class lectures, readings, and assignments.
