Regis College encourages transfer students to apply for admission to the following programs. Please note that some professional programs have special policies regarding admission.

Prospective Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Nuclear Medicine Majors

These programs have a limited capacity. Enrollment in either of these programs is not guaranteed. Learn more about transfer policies.

Prospective Nursing Majors

Program admission is highly competitive and is not guaranteed. Transfer students applying to the program are eligible for need-based financial aid but are not eligible for merit scholarships. Learn more about the nursing transfer policy.

Prospective nursing majors enrolled at Dean College may be directly accepted into nursing. Please speak with your admission counselor for details.

Regis’s policy for transfer students entering the nursing major requires a transfer student to complete a semester of residency (a.k.a. one semester of courses) at Regis prior to being accepted into the nursing major. With the residency requirement completed, you will join all other students in competing for admission into the Regis nursing program. Review of all applicants to the nursing major occurs at the conclusion of each fall term, at which time Regis will admit a designated number of qualified students.

The decision will be based primarily on the student’s grade-point average to date, with particular attention to the quality of performance in “Introduction to Nursing” and in prerequisite Regis science and math courses. Those who meet the basic criteria for program admission, but who do not gain entry, may elect to be waitlisted and be considered if an opening becomes available*. These candidates will be considered as before, against all candidates; therefore, program admission is not guaranteed. A student denied admission to nursing may continue in another academic major so long as he or she remains in good academic standing and meets the qualifications of that academic major.

* Transfer students who meet certain qualifications from Dean College may be directly accepted into nursing. Please speak with your admission counselor for details.
