Students with AP, IB, A-level, or other academic credentials may receive advanced standing credit.
3. Standardized Test Scores/ English Proficiency
Regis does not use minimum test scores for English proficiency; however, if English is not your first language, you must take one of the following tests and send us your results: TOEFL or IELTS, (The TOEFL code for Regis is 3723.)
If English is your first language or if you have attended school for 3-4 years where English is the medium of instruction, please note that submission of SAT or ACT test scores is optional—except for applicants to the Nursing program. Regis’ College Board (SAT) code is 3723. Our ACT code is 1886.
One letter of recommendation (in English) is required and must come from a teacher who has taught you in an academic subject, such as English, mathematics, science, or social studies.
In order to expedite the immigration process for an I-20 Form and F-1 student visa, we also ask international applicants to submit:
5. Passport ID Page
Please send us a copy of your passport photo ID page so we can confirm the spelling of your name and your date of birth.
6. Documentation of Financial Support/Certification of Finances
Because need-based financial aid is rare and limited for international students, U.S. immigration rules require you to submit financial documentation indicating that you and your family or sponsors have sufficient funds to cover one year of college expenses at Regis (currently US $52,000).
Documenting your financial support can be done in one of two ways:
- Submit an official bank letter (in English and, if possible, with a supporting bank statement) confirming that you have the funds to cover your college costs, or
Complete the College Board Certification of Finances form.
Be sure all financial documents are in English, in U.S. dollars, and officially signed and dated within six months of the start of classes. An I-20 Form will be provided only after you have been accepted, paid the enrollment deposit, and have both your passport ID page and documentation of financial support on file.
International Transfer Students - Foreign Credential Evaluation
Students may transfer to Regis from other colleges and universities by completing the Common Application and following steps 2-6 above. Transfer students must also submit an official transcript of their college-level coursework along with catalog course descriptions.
Transfer students who completed college or university courses outside the U.S. must have their transcripts translated in English and credits evaluated by a recognized agency such as World Education Services, Education Credential Evaluators, or Foundation for International Services.
Note to all applicants:
Please be sure to keep copies of all the documents you submit for admission. You may need to present these documents at the U.S. Embassy when you apply for a student visa or to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials when you enter the United States.
