Graduate Admissions

Applying to our graduate and doctoral programs is simple! Applications for most graduate programs are reviewed on the basis of the online application and transcripts. Some graduate programs, including health care programs, require additional materials such as work experience, test scores or letters of recommendation. Consult your program page for specific requirements, as admission requirements, application processes and deadlines vary by college and degree. 

The best resource for any of your questions regarding your specific program is your admissions counselor. We can clarify for you what your degree requires, discuss prior learning credit, financial aid and tuition assistance. We can even recommend programs and classes, or simply help you get started with the application process.

For health care programs that require application through the Centralized Application Service (CAS), transcripts should be submitted through CAS.

Once you have submitted all necessary documentation required for your complete admission application package and an admission decision has been made, you will receive an email notifying you of your admission status, as well as a letter in the mail. The turn-around time between your application submittal and notification of your admission decision is largely dependent on the degree program you are applying for, but we aim to process admission decisions within 10 business days.

Admission to health care programs is communicated after all application materials have been received and on-campus interviews have been completed, if applicable.

Regis University accepts transfer students and transfer credit in many different ways, however due to the nature of graduate study many graduate programs limit how many transfer credits may be applied from other insitutions.

Of the total semester hours required for any one of the graduate degree programs, no more than 20% of the total semester hours required may include transfer/competency-based course work, or course work included in a previously earned graduate degree, from a transfer institution or from Regis University. Transfer credit is approved by the faculty or academic designee of each graduate program and is not available for all programs. In graduate programs for which transfer credit is permitted, transfer credit is awarded for graduate-level coursework for which a grade of “B-” or better has been earned at other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Only credit completed within the last ten years is eligible for consideration.

 

Regis University offers graduate housing in Vincent J. Boryla Apartments. Denver also has a variety of housing options, friendly neighborhoods and easily accessible public transportation.

Most aid programs require that you enroll for a minimum of half-time status (3-5 graduate credit hours per semester), and a variety of funding options exist for graduate students. Scholarships and grants, military benefits, employer reimbursement options, student loans and tuition deferment are available to those who qualify. For more information, visit financial aid.

Regis University teaches civil discourse and activism. Student advocacy is a brave step towards justice. We are for and with students who choose to speak up, to participate and to stand for something.
