Regis College has been designated a Military Friendly institution in the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® Schools list. Now in its 10th year, the prestigious list identifies institutions committed to serving the military and veteran community. Regis received a silver award designation for the opportunities it provides to veterans and their families.
“Veterans are an important part of our community and they deserve the very best. At Regis they find an encouraging, close-knit community to help further their education,” said Regis College President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “From our participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program and work with the GI Bill to our new Veterans Center, we are dedicated to providing veterans with every opportunity to succeed.”
Admission counselors at Regis offer one-on-one guidance and the Veterans Program Office helps veterans apply their benefits to their education. A newly established Veterans Center on campus provides students a dedicated space to study or meet up with fellow veterans.
Regis participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which allows veterans to receive funds from the Department of Veterans Affairs for their unmet tuition and fees. The university also accepts the GI Bill, military credits through the Joint Services Transcript program and offers discounted tuition for the spouses of active-duty service members and veterans.
The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weighting were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Ernst and Young, a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, independently evaluated the scoring methodology used for the Military Friendly® Schools list.
