Regent University

Regent University is one of the fastest growing universities in the nation, experiencing 21 percent growth from Summer 2016 to Summer 2017. Guided by a mission of Christian Leadership to Change the World, the school prepares students with the knowledge to excel and the faith to live with purpose. This fully accredited university offers associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees within an innovative learning environment that includes the option of enrolling solely on campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia; 100 percent online; or using a blend of both with no compromise of academic quality or personal enrichment. Eight-week sessions are available to undergraduate students and many master's-level students. Regent's 128-plus challenging areas of study align with the most in-demand fields projected to grow over the next 10 years, including healthcare, education, accounting, computer science, business administration, and information systems. Since its establishment in 1978, Regent has equipped more than 23,000 alumni from 128 countries to become accomplished professionals. Over 800 of our alumni are faculty members at 423 colleges and universities around the world, with nine serving as university presidents and two as chancellors; nearly 450 alumni work for Fortune 500 companies; 46 School of Law alumni have served as judges in 15 states across the country; and 800-plus alumni have received a Teacher of the Year award since 2004. Additionally, many Regent alumni serve as attorneys, legislators, entrepreneurs and CEOs, counselors and ministers, award-winning filmmakers and actors, military leaders and other distinguished professionals. More than providing diplomas, Regent provides education that matters to the world and to our graduates who are ready to serve with excellence, integrity and innovation. The university's leading edge in the following areas strengthens the social and economic fabric of our nation and our world: business and leadership education focused on entrepreneurship and ethical decision-making; award-winning teacher education programs that integrate character development for student success; government and public administration programs that provide principled answers to problems in public management, radical terrorism and international relations; nationally recognized psychology and counseling programs that train mental health professionals to promote human well-being; and distinguished legal education that produces graduates defending the rights of the oppressed and the rule of law around the world. U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked Regent a top school nationally for online bachelor's programs and for bachelor's programs for military veterans. The university is also in the top two percent of schools nationally to receive an "A" rating for its comprehensive undergraduate liberal arts curriculum by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni and is a top military-friendly university. Other accomplishments include Regent's School of Law faculty being named as among the Top 10 in the Nation by the Princeton Review, 2013, 2014 and 2014 and the Regent Law moot court program being named among the top five in the nation (University of Houston Law Center, 2016). Regent's diverse student body, approaching 11,000 students, represents all 50 states and 39 religious denominations. On average, Regents annual tuition is $15,000 less than that of other private institutions. All great universities are repositories of knowledge, economic drivers for their communities and nurturers of human potential. But they also have a responsibility to help shape a society that will be more productive, more engaging and more virtuous. Regent University is founded on the belief that we will leave the world a better place.
