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 before the start of classes.

Check Your Class Schedule
All incoming pharmacy students are pre-registered for your first term of classes. You'll be assigned an academic advisor in July, and they'll reach out to speak with you before classes begin. 

Buy Your Textbooks
Textbooks are available one month before class begins. You can purchase—or rent—paperback and digital texts through the Regis Bookstore.

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. 

Computer Requirements and Dress Code

The Regis University School of Pharmacy requires all students to have a laptop that meet minimum hardware and software requirements. As future health care professionals, students in the Doctor of Pharmacy program are expected to adhere to the professional dress code requirement during class, on-campus activities and in clinical situations.

Student Handbook and Conduct Policies

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