6: Compliance Requirements

Our Compliance Office needs you to complete some important requirements before you take your first class. All compliance documents MUST be submitted and approved by the deadline. Be sure to review your compliance requirements thoroughly, as some take longer to complete than others.

Detailed Compliance Requirements


Get Ready for Classes

Once all your documentation is submitted, there are just a few more things you'll need to do before your first day of classes.

Be sure to join your cohort's Facebook group - a private Facebook group where you can get to know future classmates – or potential roommates – long before classes start. Your admissions counselor will provide your invitation to join the group.

Purchase or Waive Insurance
All students who already have their own health insurance must waive the Regis student health insurance option. Students who do not waive or purchase insurance will be automatically enrolled prior to the start of classes.

Review Your Student Handbook
Start off on the right foot by reviewing your Student Handbook. Learn more about academic policies, standards of conduct, educational outcomes, course descriptions, graduation and more.

Buy Your Textbooks
Textbooks are available one month before class begins. You can purchase—or rent—paperback and digital texts through the Regis Bookstore. Your custom book list can be found in WebAdvisor.

Plan for Orientation
Orientation typically occurs the week before classes start, so be on the lookout for more information from your Admissions Counselor. You’ll soak up some last-minute reminders, meet future classmates and get ready for the new exciting phase of your life. 

Prerequisite Requirements

Your decision letter contains an unofficial transcript evaluation which indicates the courses you have left to complete. For a full list of prerequisite requirements, click the link that corresponds to your program.

All prerequisites must be completed before your program starts. Once your prerequisites have been satisfied, be sure to submit your final transcripts to Regis University to verify completion. You must submit your high school transcripts as well as transcripts from all post-secondary institutions before your program begins.

Health Care Ethics

All pre-licensure nursing students, regardless of program, are required to take a course in Health Care Ethics prior to starting at Regis. If taken at Regis, this class is called HCE 430 and is taught online in an 8-week format. We also accept transfer credit from other schools to satisfy this requirement. The following courses are accepted from common transfer institutions:

Metropolitan State University of Denver: ITP 3200
University of Colorado: PHIL 3160, HUMN 5242, PHIL 4242 or PHIL 5242
University of Phoenix: HCS 335, 8 weeks, online

If your Health Care Ethics prerequisite is completed at an outside institution, you will be also required to successfully complete an online module that provides a Jesuit component to the curriculum that is not included in courses taken outside of Regis. The module is free and takes about 4 hours to complete.
