Regent University is an outstanding institution. I love being surrounded by other Christians as well as getting a quality education. Before transferring to Regent University I really wanted an opportunity to excel and challenge myself spiritually and to have the opportunity to get involved in their Army ROTC program in hopes of commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army. The teachers are friendly and I can tell that they empower students to push pass their comfort zones. The campus is gorgeous and clean. Please please please consider Regent University!

I have had nothing but positive experiences from Regent University. I am in my senior year working on completing my undergrad degree in business. The online platform has been amazing! The professors have all been amazing and helpful through anything I have experienced. Although a bit on the pricier side, Regent offers many degree programs that include a Christian prospective.
I am a veteran and military spouse, and because we have to relocate every few years, I had to find a University that offered a good online program. After a lot of research, I decided to give Regent University a try. I am now in my third semester with Regent and it has been very rewarding. The entire staff is wonderful! They are helpful, caring, and even check in with me via email or phone call just to make sure there isn't anything that I need. The classes are challenging and to date, every instructor has been amazing. Regent University has a great online program that is not just going to hand you a good grade. You will have to put the time and effort in, but the experience will be rewarding!
