International Students Applying to a Program with On-Campus Classes

Follow the steps below if you want to apply to a program with on-campus classes.

Questions?
Ask Admissions.

Our people are here to help you succeed at Regis. We are also here to advise international applicants who want to study on campus about the immigration regulations you must follow to maintain your legal status while in the U.S.

Complete the application and all application requirements for your program. Examples of application requirements might include an essay, resume or letters of recommendation. You can find the application requirements for your specific program under “How to Apply” on the program webpage.

Transcripts and college credit systems vary by country. To help Regis University evaluate your application, you must send us an official evaluation of your transcripts. If you are applying to an undergraduate program, we need an evaluation of your high school transcripts or your college transcripts. If you are applying for a graduate degree, we need an evaluation of your undergraduate degree transcripts. If the Regis program you are applying to requires prerequisite courses, these must be listed on your official transcript evaluation. All official transcript evaluations must show an evaluation of each course and the equivalent courses from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university.

We will accept evaluations from any NACES-approved evaluation agencies. There are two ways we can accept your official transcript evaluation:

  1. The evaluation agency may send an original, official evaluation directly to Regis University
  2. A sealed envelope containing your official transcript evaluation may be mailed or delivered directly to the Office of Admissions.

Ask your evaluation agency to send electronic official transcript evaluations to sendtranscripttoRU@regis.edu

Or mail paper official transcript evaluations to:

Regis University Office of Admissions
3333 Regis Blvd.,
Mail code A-12
Denver, CO 80221-1099

The transcript evaluation process can take 3-6 weeks. It is your responsibility to engage, follow up and provide payment to the transcript evaluation agency you choose. Photocopies of the evaluation are not acceptable.

At this time, Regis University does not offer English as a Second Language (ESL) programs or classes, so we want to make sure that your level of English proficiency will allow you to succeed in your program. You can provide proof of English proficiency in the following ways:
