Four-year undergraduate merit scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement. Students do not need to apply separately for a merit scholarship and are informed of their award at the time of their acceptance. Merit scholarships are awarded to entering full-time, first-year, and transfer students only. Merit scholarships do not need to be repaid.
Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is an index number that the financial aid staff use to determine how much financial aid you will receive. The information you report on your FAFSA, including specific tax information and family income, is used to calculate your EFC.

Regis is an active participant in all veteran’s educational reimbursement programs. For the Post-9/11 GI Bill®Yellow Ribbon Program, Regis contributes $35,000 towards undergraduate tuition and $25,000 towards graduate tuition. These amounts are matched by the Veteran’s Administration. Recipients of this program will also receive a housing and textbook allowance from the Department of Veteran Affairs. Qualified veterans and their dependents are eligible for this benefit. The Regis College Veteran Center works collaboratively with students who are enrolled in the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Program Chapter 31 and their VA employment counselor to successfully pursue their education.
Going from full-time to part-time (under 12 credits for undergraduate students; under six credits for graduate students) for an undergraduate student can greatly impact your financial aid award as some loans or grants are based on full time enrollment. If you are considering going part-time, you should contact your financial aid counselor to better understand how this will affect your award.
