Regis defines a transfer student as anyone with a high school diploma or General Equivalency Diploma (GED) who has matriculated full-time, or enrolled part-time at another accredited institution.

Important Note: Current Regis students interested in taking courses at another institution are not considered a Regis transfer student. If you are a current Regis student and would like more information about taking a course at another institution please see your faculty advisor or the director of Transfer Advising.

Course Equivalency Guidelines

  • Transfer credits are evaluated individually by the director of Transfer Advising.
  • Courses to be considered for transfer credit must be taken at a regionally accredited institution.
  • Courses must come in with a grade of “C” or higher to be considered.
  • Transfer credit is awarded for courses that are similar in content and depth to those offered at Regis.
  • Students can transfer up to 66 credits.
  • For bachelor’s degree completion programs, students can transfer in a maximum of 90 credits from an accredited college/university and must complete a minimum of 30 credits at Regis based on established transfer equivalencies by Regis College to earn a Regis bachelor’s degree. Some academic programs may have specific requirements about transfer credits.
  • All students earning a Regis degree must complete a minimum of 54 credits at Regis.
  • All students must earn a minimum of 120 credits to graduate. Some programs require more than 120 credits.
  • All current articulation agreements are described here.

What types of general education requirements do I have to complete?

At Regis the general education requirements are called the Core. During your first advising appointment you will review which approved transfer courses have satisfied Core requirements with the Office of Academic Advising.


I would like to review the requirements for my major before meeting with an advisor, how can I do that?

Review all requirements for your major here.


How do I get assigned an academic advisor and when will I meet them?

Transfer students will meet with the Office of Academic Advising to make their first semester course schedule. After this meeting, when the major of interest has been confirmed, the director of Academic Advising assigns an advisor. Faculty advisors are usually assigned within the students chosen major. New students will meet their academic advisor within the first couple of weeks of their first semester at Regis.


How do I get my Regis e-mail and log-in information for online resources?

You will receive an email from ITS covering all technology related information, including how to log into the Regis online resources. If you are having problems logging in you can find support here, for all other issues please create a ticket with the Helpdesk.


Are there any social opportunities specifically for transfer students?

Yes! At the beginning of each semester the Office of Undergraduate Admission and the Office of Academic Advising collaborate to organize a welcome reception for new and returning transfer students. This allows staff to reconnect with each student to help them get adjusted to the start of the semester while also allowing fellow transfer students to mingle.
