Admission Procedures & Requirements
Regis College seeks students committed to developing their academic ability, personal goals, and leadership skills. The focus of the Regis College experience is the total development of the person. The candidate’s secondary school record (including grades, level of courses over the four years, and class standing) or GED score report, essay, letters of recommendation, and SAT I or American College Testing Assessment (ACT) scores are carefully reviewed. An interview with an admission representative is highly recommended.
Consideration is given to candidates whose educational background varies from the above preparation. Regis College welcomes applicants for admission without regard to race, color, religious affiliation, national or ethnic origin, or learning or physical disability.
Undergraduate students are considered for admission in September and January. All undergraduate candidates for admission will be evaluated through the rolling admission process and reviewed on an individual basis. Priority will be given to applications filed by February 15 for the fall semester and November 15 for the spring semester. Completed applications will receive a decision letter within three weeks. Applications received after the priority deadline will be considered only when space is available.
Admitted students should submit a non-refundable enrollment deposit by the Candidate’s Reply date of May 1; or by alternate date specified by the Director of Admission. Deposits received after May 1 will be accepted on a space-available basis. Admitted students applying for the spring semester (January) should submit a non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 1.
The majority of first-year students entering Regis College have graduated from an accredited secondary school.
The following credentials are recommended:
- English 4 years
- Mathematics 3 years (Algebra I, II, and Geometry)
- Natural Science 2 years (one with a laboratory)
- Foreign Language 2 years (same language)
- Social Science 2 years
- Electives 3 or 4
*Please note: students interested in being considered for nursing should complete four years of mathematics and natural science.
A final high school transcript and an official indication of graduation must be received by the Office of Admission no later than July 15. Failure to submit these documents may result in the student’s acceptance being rescinded.
Undergraduate Nursing Requirements
Students may seek admission to the nursing major during their first year at Regis College. During the first year, students must follow the first-year curriculum plan for nursing students. To be considered for the nursing major, students must:
- Have at least a 3.0 Grade Point Average in all first-year courses and no grade lower than 2.7.
- Have an interview with a nursing administrator.
The nursing faculty determines acceptance into the nursing major for baccalaureate students. The Admission, Retention, Progression Committee (ARPC) will review the files of each student who has declared nursing as a major in January of their sophomore year. Once the file has been reviewed, the director will notify the student in writing of his or her status in the nursing major. In the spring, students who have declared nursing as a major will be sent a letter notifying them of their status. A copy of this letter will also be sent to the assistant dean for advising and support services and to the registrar. Students who are not accepted to the nursing major must make an appointment with the assistant dean for advising and support services and declare another major.
