Worried about paying for college? We can help

At Regis, we never want cost to stand in the way of your education dreams and career goals.  


Whether you are a traditional full-time student just out of high school, a non-traditional or part-time student looking to take your life and career in a new direction, or a graduate student pursuing the next step in your profession, we offer a variety of scholarships, grants and financial aid that can offset the cost of your Regis education. And you don’t have to be a basketball star or aspiring opera singer to qualify — though if you are, we offer scholarships for you, too. 


Financial Aid 

Financial aid for all students is based on the information you provide in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) document. You must update and complete a new application each year you attend classes.  

We understand that the FAFSA application can be a complicated and daunting process. But we are here to help! Check out our Applying for Financial Aid page, where you’ll find step-by-step instructions to walk you through the FAFSA process, as well as answers to many of the most frequently asked questions. If you need additional help, get one-on-one support by contacting our Financial Aid Counselors.



Regis offers a variety of scholarships to both undergraduate and graduate students. Many of those are available to undergraduates beginning any degree program. Other scholarships recognize specific talents or have been established to support students pursuing degrees in particular fields.

Student Loans 

When aid and scholarships don’t quite cover the cost of your Regis education, student loans may be an option. Student loans can come from the federal government, from private sources such as a bank or financial institution, or from other organizations. Unlike grants or scholarships, student loans must be paid back. However, depending on the source or financial institution, most student loans are offered at lower interest rates than other types of loans. 

The federal government, through the U.S. Department of Education, offers several types of direct student loans. One type, Direct Subsidized Loans, are provided to undergraduate students and are based on need, as determined by the FAFSA application. Non-subsidized loans are available to both undergraduate and graduate students but are not based on financial need. You can find more information about federal student loans at studentaid.gov. 

Loans from private institutions often can fill in the gap when federal loans and financial aid don’t cover all college expenses. But before you sign on the dotted line, it is important to research the lending institution and make sure you choose one that is reputable and has a good track record. Reliable sources such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and U.S. News & World Report can provide essential insight about various providers of student loans.  


Financial Wellness 

Whether you’re a working adult looking to complete your degree or a recent high school graduate – chances are that financial wellness is an intimidating term. Regis University has free tips, budgeting tools and budget calculator guidance to help you balance and plan your educational spending. Even if the best school for you isn’t Regis, our Jesuit mission compels us to provide you with resources that serve you.  

From credit score to loan options, budget during school through deferment and repayment – paying for college can be an overwhelming confusing time. Finding a school that is dedicated to making you succeed as a student and a financially stable adult is just as important as the degree you graduate with.
