In November 2022, Regent announced a new online learning policy. Effective immediately, students in Regent's MATS, MACS, MDiv, and Graduate Diploma programs will be permitted to complete up to 50% of their program credits online––a significant increase from the previous cap of 33%. This policy change will be accompanied by an expansion in the number and diversity of online learning options in Regent’s regular catalogue.
Regent has also adopted a number of time-limited policies in order to support current students who have been impacted by the pandemic:
- No courses taken between March 2020 and April 2023 will count toward the 50-percent cap on online learning.
- Regent has committed to offer online access to a sufficient number and range of courses to ensure that students who began a Graduate Diploma, MACS, MATS, MDiv, or ThM during the pandemic will be able to complete a full 50 percent of their programs online after April 2023. This commitment will extend up to the maximum completion length for each program.
Further details are available here. Current students with questions about the impact of these new policies are invited to make an appointment with Academic Advisor and Administrator Ann Zlindra.
