Laying the groundwork for flexible, online and/or evening students’ connection and success.

If you are transferring fewer than 45 credit hours or starting your education fresh, you will begin at Regis with Cornerstone, part of Regis's core curriculum.* This program cultivates the foundational skills you’ll need for your education and your career, while introducing you to your peers for a cohesive learning experience.

Employers consistently communicate a gap in professionals’ soft skills such as critical thinking, teamwork, intercultural skills, ethical reasoning, problem solving and social responsibility. Cornerstone’s four courses hone these skills, making you a successful student and desirable professional

Scholarship Deserves a Scholarship

Successfully complete the four Cornerstone classes, and we’ll cover the cost of your fifth.** We believe in the power of these foundational courses that strongly. Our Cornerstone Scholarship celebrates your success and keeps you moving toward the graduation stage.

Academic Cohort

You will be assigned to a cohort of 12-18 students to complete the Cornerstone classes. Your cohort is your built-in network of mutual peer support, easing your transition back into academic life. We encourage you to lean on your peers for social and academic backing through the rest of your experience at Regis.

Four Foundational Classes

We developed Cornerstone to connect four core classes, required for graduation, together. This gives you a more meaningful experience, as the courses build in skill development and theme. At the end of this program, you will have a foundation to jump into the remainder of your time at Regis.

Each class is seven weeks with a one-week break between courses so you can refresh, re-center and focus on the courses you’re taking for your major, if you decide to take more than one at a time. You will complete all four classes with your cohort. The classes are:
  • The Skilled Learner: hone your oral and written communication skills
  • Intro to Philosophy: analyze yourself and the world around you while implementing what you’ve learned
  • Intro to Religion: explore religion around the globe and across time to practice critical thinking and intercultural skills
  • Leading Lives That Matter: combine your new skills in this course on social responsibility and ethical reasoning

Your Student Success Coach

You will be assigned a dedicated student success coach who will provide you with individualized support and help keep you focused on your academic goals. Ask your coach for anything you may need—that’s what they’re there for!

Various on-campus events held at our Northwest Denver Campus will give you the chance to meet your classmates and engage with the larger Regis community.
