- Employment authorization
- Academic support service referrals
Regis College offers students support services through our Academic Center for Excellence to those who require additional help in certain areas such as:
- peer tutoring on various academic subjects
- peer writing at the Writing Center

International applicants for admission as first-year students are expected to complete a college-preparatory program at an accredited secondary school. Preparation for entrance should include:
- Four years of English
- Two years of foreign language
- Three years of mathematics
- Two years of science
- Two years of social science
- Three or four electives
Consideration is given to applicants whose educational background varies from the above profile, including those who have taken the GED in lieu of the traditional high school experience.
The Admission Committee places primary emphasis on the secondary school record (courses selected, grades received, and rank in class), a personal interview, one teacher and one guidance recommendation, and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and/or American College Testing (ACT), TOEFL or IELTS results. The Admission Committee does not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or handicap. In fact, Regis College welcomes diversity among students.
The Admission Committee considers applicants for early admission, rolling admission, and advanced placement. Decisions regarding acceptance are made within two to three weeks of receipt of completed applications.
