Our Distance Education courses offer flexible options to help you complete your program.


We recognize that many students will be dealing with the aftereffects of the COVID-19 pandemic for some time, so policies that normally limit the use of online credits (i) to meet the Residence Requirement, (ii) to fulfil the requirements of each program, or (iii) to meet eligibility for Regent College financial aid have been suspended until April 30, 2023.

While you can still take Distance Education courses, Regent's regular courses in the 2022-23 academic year will also be accessible online until April 30, 2023 due to COVID-19. 

How it works

Online courses are normally delivered in one of two formats.

  • We offer digital access to a select group of courses in our fall, winter and summer terms. Students join the course via Zoom, with the ability to interact with the onsite group. To digitally access a course, students must register for the online section of that course in REGIS.
  • We also offer a range of courses designed for online learning, created by with a blend of pre-recorded lectures, live meetings with the course professor, and written interactions on Moodle. These courses only have an online option at registration.
You will need a computer and reliable internet access to take a course online. Resources to complete course assignments can be accessed through our electronic library holdings.

Just like our onsite courses, you can complete online courses as credit towards a graduate degree or audited for personal enrichment. Students auditing courses are not required to complete assignments. For more information on the difference between credit and audit, visit our Choosing Courses page.

Download the Distance Education Student Handbook for more information on how to complete an online course.


While every effort has been made to be accurate with the schedules below, please be advise that the list of courses are subject to change before the first day of registration of each term.

Credit Limits

We believe that theology is best learned in community here on campus. However, many people need a greater degree of flexibility to make that possible, so students in most of Regent's programs can complete up to 50 percent of their program credits online.

For program-specific limits, visit our Graduate Programs pages.
