Regis University offers you the opportunity to help finance your education through alliances, military benefits, tuition deferments, and sponsored billing. We also offer guidance for international students who may be looking for additional funding.
Tuition Deferment/Payment Plans
You may defer your tuition due date 90 days from the start of the course’s academic term. This 90-day extension allows students time to apply for financial aid, obtain funds through tuition reimbursement, or self-pay in increments within the 90 days. Late deferments (after the due date) are NOT accepted. Please complete and submit your Tuition Deferment request online. The online Tuition Deferment can be completed in four easy steps. Log into WebAdvisor Students Menu and, under Student Accounts, click "Tuition Deferment."
- Select term
- Select course(s) to defer.
- Confirm selection.
- Pay Deferment Fee ($40 per course) for validation of deferment
- Deferment must be submitted by the course's tuition due date
Deferment fees are non-transferrable and non-refundable. Please note: course fees cannot be deferred. The Deferment Plan creates a financial obligation between you and the University. Transcripts and/or diplomas cannot be released during the deferment period. If you paid a deferment fee and your course is cancelled, you will be credited for the deferment fee.
The Military Deferment provides the same options as above with no fee charged.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT'S REQUIRED FINANCIAL DOCUMENTATION
Below you will find information for International Students. You may also visit the International Student & Scholar Services page HERE.
At Regis University, international student applicants on F-1 and/or J-1 visas are required to show that they have sufficient funding available to pay tuition and living expenses for one full academic year. Official bank statements are the easiest way for applicants to showcase this financial data. The statement must show the name of the account holder and the length of time the account has been active. International bank statements should be no older than three months, while U.S. bank statements should be no older than one month.
For more information on the U.S. dollar amount required to attend Regis University and cover your cost of living, please contact a Regis Enrollment Counselor. Additionally, please consult your enrollment counselor regarding questions about any additional sources of financial documentation that are accepted by the university.
AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT
Many international students receive assistance with their educational funding through a sponsor, whether it be a family member who is contributing toward the cost of their education, an employer, a contact in the United States or any other contributor. The student must have each sponsor complete an affidavit of support on behalf of the student. The affidavit of support indicates the dollar amount promised to the student by the sponsor and the document must be notarized before being submitted to Regis University. The sponsor will also be required to submit an official bank statement showing their ability to fund the student’s education in the amount promised. To obtain the affidavit of support form, please contact a Regis admissions counselor.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FOR FINANCING YOUR EDUCATION
Outside of Regis University, there are numerous independent organizations and resources to help students obtain financial assistance. Some sources provide search engines for international student scholarships, some provide great resources within students’ home countries. We encourage you to explore the compiled resources below to find what opportunities will work best for you.*
Please consult the NAFSA website (from the Association of International Educators) for additional resources and funding opportunities.
*Never provide any of your personal or payment information when searching for scholarships. If you need help verifying the validity of a scholarship opportunity, please contact our Financial Aid Office at 1.800.568.8932.
Since international students are required to show proof of adequate financial standing in order to attend Regis University, employment opportunities are available to international students only as a way to provide additional income, not as a way to offset educational costs. Regis University does offer non-federally funded Work-Study as well as Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT), which must be an integral piece of a student’s curriculum. All of these employment opportunities are highly competitive and strongly regulated. For more information, please contact Cathy Gorrell, director of registration.
Regis University is proud to provide our men and women in the armed forces with values-based degree programs. Active duty and veteran service men and women can choose from bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, and related certificates in the high-demand fields of business, computer sciences, counseling, humanities, social sciences and teacher education. Regis is ideal for military service men and women who want to continue their education and advance their careers.
For more information, please visit the Military and Veteran Office website.
Regis University uses Sponsored Billing to process third-party specialized billing. Some students work for employers or are military students that have a direct billing agreement established with Regis. These third-party payers have agreed to pay Regis University part or all of the student’s tuition and fees. Student Accounts will provide billing statements to these third-party payers after the add/drop date of each academic term.
Sponsored Billing is not Tuition Reimbursement. Some sponsoring organizations require grades and/or course completion prior to payment. Because payment must not be dependent upon receipt of grades or successful completion of the course, the Sponsored Billing option is not available for those organizations. Instead, a student may pay the tuition or use theTuition Deferment and get reimbursed by his or her sponsor when the course is completed. To access the Tuition Deferment form, first go to WebAdvisor, and log in. Select Students, and under Student Accounts select Tuition Deferment. Also, Regis University reserves the right to deny a sponsored billing arrangement to a student whose account is in arrears or has been referred to an agency for collection.
For more information regarding Sponsored Billing, please visit the Student Accounts webpage HERE.
