Application Review

We thoroughly evaluate the credentials of every candidate and review all aspects of their Regis application. We consider many factors, including:

  • Academic achievement
  • Leadership qualities, extracurricular involvement, and commitment to community service
  • Writing ability as shown on the essay component of the common application
  • We recognize the changes in SAT/ACT administration during spring 2020 due to COVID-19 have created challenges for students who wish to take or retake these examinations as part of their application process for fall 2021. For students applying for fall 2021 admission into the undergraduate nursing program within the Young School of Nursing or the dental hygiene program within the School of Health Sciences during the 2020-2021 admission cycle, we have adopted an SAT/ACT optional policy. Students may submit scores, but they are not required.

Students who are homeschooled and seeking entry into the St. George's University or New England College of Optometry programs are required to submit SAT/ACT scores.

Regis College evaluates applicants for admission without regard to race, age, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnic or national origin, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, genetic information, pregnancy, veteran status, membership in uniformed services, or any other protected status.
