Adult Undergraduate Admissions

We know going back to school as an adult can feel intimidating at times. Is it worth it? Is it possible to balance work, life and school all at the same time? The answer is yes - and we're here to show you how. 

Our admissions counselors are prepared for any question you can throw at them, and are ready and waiting to help you through this process. Get ready for a brighter future.

Applications for adult undergraduate programs are reviewed on the basis of the online application and high school transcripts. Some programs require additional materials such as a personal essay or letter of recommendation. Regis University does not require standardized test scores for admission to adult undergraduate programs.

Application Materials

While application materials vary from program to program, some common components are:

Online Application: Regis's online application is simple to complete and does not require an application fee.

Transcripts: High school transcripts should be forwarded to Regis University's Office of Admissions. 

Personal Statement: A personal statement or essay helps us get to know you and your personal and educational goals.

Resume: Your resume should include your prior work, volunteering and community service experience.

Admissions Timeline

Many of our adult undergraduate programs start multiple times over the course of a year, so you don't have to wait until the fall to begin your educational journey. Start dates are listed on each program page and are frequently offered every eight weeks.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, but early submission of all application materials is encouraged. We suggest applying to your program no later than 4 weeks before the start date, however some programs require more time. 

Applying for financial aid? The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opens in October of each year for the following year's academic terms. We encourage you to submit your FAFSA as early as possible.
