Who can take courses at Regent?
We welcome adults from all professional and academic backgrounds to enjoy our graduate courses and programs.
Many of our students choose to enroll in one of our six graduate programs before taking any courses, but students can take up to 12 credits at Regent before applying to a graduate program.
Whether you apply for a program or not, an accredited bachelor's degree is usually required in order to take courses for credit. Some exceptions apply in the case of mature students (28 or older).
Not ready to take a course for credit? Consider auditing! If you are 23 or older, you can audit an unlimited number of courses at Regent. Those under 23 must have completed at least 50% of the courses required for an accredited, four-year bachelor's degree.
