Ethical Code of Conduct

Statement of Ethical Principles

All new borrowers at Regis University must complete Federal Direct Loan Entrance Counseling online at www.studentloans.gov and enter the Regis University school code of 001363. To receive loan funds promptly, students should complete this required counseling at least two weeks before the beginning of the semester.

Exit counseling is required for students who are graduating or leaving school. Exit counseling does not prevent students from borrowing federal loans at Regis University in the future, and is not sufficient to officially withdraw from school. The counseling provides useful information to help students understand their rights and responsibilities as federal loan borrowers and prepares them for repayment of federal student loans. You will receive notification from the Financial Aid office when you need to complete exit counseling, either before your expected graduation date or if you have officially withdrawn from the university. Exit counseling is also completed online at www.studentloans.gov

It is important for students to understand the policies and procedures to obtain and maintain funding. Read the policies on Satisfactory Academic Progress. For questions or concerns, please contact Enrollment Services at 1.800.388.2366, ext. 4126 or 303.458.4126 or email studentservices@regis.edu.
