Education is what you make of it. I've actually had nothing but good experiences, except that I have had 3 counselors in the three years I've been attending. Emails have always been acknowledged by all departments timely, and financial aid questions have always been answered in a timely manner. I also am not a religious person, so don't be deterred if you are not religious. I chose Regis because it has been reputable in education for generations, and honestly I had known people that attended (my grandpa at one point) and classroom teachers there (classroom not applicable to me since I enrolled in the on-line program.) So far, everyone has been extremely helpful. My advice is to not do what I did at first and go in not talking to an advisor - talk to them first, lay out a plan, and if there are ANY changes to be made in your degree program talk to an advisor first. I don't understand the negative review here, but perhaps they or the person had a negative experience, which is bound to possibly happen at any institute - don't let that be a deterrent.

I am currently enrolled in the MS Information Assurance program at Regis. Overall the program has been good. As you said, it is what a student makes of it. The negative is that there has been no contact with an advisor. I will graduate in the Spring of 2015 and have a few questions but eleven emails sent to the advisor assigned to me over the last year have gone unanswered. My enrollment advisor was very attentive and the main reason for my choosing Regis but he was the last person spoken to in the University outside of class since August of 2013. I have called the school because it seems possible to make a few changes to my coursework which would provide the opportunity to earn a second masters. Each phone call ended with instructions that I needed to contact the advisor assigned to me. I tried to explain that emails were going unanswered but was told to try again. The second negative I have had is with the academic environment of Regis' online program. Only one instructor has provided comment on content of work submitted. Several gave an A for work submitted, regardless of content or quality.

There is absolutely no support for online students. If there is a problem with an instructor, this school does not care and will not in any way support its students. It will be difficult if not impossible to contact the only support a student has, the academic adviser. Advisers will not respond to emails, will not return phone calls, will not answer phone calls. Problems with instructors include not grading assignments, not responding to emails, not answering questions about assignments. I have had several classes where the syllabus was wrong, lacked instruction and incomplete. If a student attempts to get help with problems, the university turns away as if to say, tough luck, we won't help you. I have had so many problems since the beginning with trying to get my transcripts evaluated to ordering books online, all fraught with problems. That should have been my first clue...when I began the admission process and the person evaluating my transcripts did not have the time to do access them. The only bright light at this college is that their online librarians and IT department are very good at what they do, and very helpful. I would never recommend this online program to anyone. If a school cannot support its students, who pay it money for services, it could be stated that this school is greedy and for a Jesuit school to be greedy is not a good sign.

I am sorry you had this experience - mine was completely the opposite. I graduated in December 2013 from the RN-BSN program. While I had very few issues to be addressed to begin with, when I did they were promptly handled in a very professional manner. I appreciated when I called the main number I always talked to a very caring person who made sure to get me to the right person. If I had any issues with the instructors (again, very few) I was able to work directly with the instructor for resolution. My instructors were all very competent, experienced, and encouraging to their "classroom" of students.

After completing one year as an online student, I would advise any prospective student to look at other colleges. As a student, you will not have any support from this university. Academic advisers will not answer phone calls from you, will not respond to your emails, and if they do, they will not by any means support the student. Since the academic adviser is the only resource an online student has, this means that online students have absolutely no support at this college. If the student has a problem, whether it is an instructor has not graded assignments, this has happened for weeks with one instructors, emails that are not responded to, that has happened with multiple instructors, or the instructor is lousy at providing guidance or answering questions, this too has happened multiple times, as a student, you simply have no recourse. Only 50% of my instructors have actually been good instructors with one fantastic, the very best you could ever ask for instructor. This university also doesn't trust the students since the instructors use turnitin but does not allow students access to the same site. Students will have to access 3 websites to interact with the various departments at the school with little or no instruction on how to do so. Their online library is very difficult if not impossible to use. The online librarians and the IT department are the only good departments at the school. Don't order your books online because they may not have them in stock and will not contact you if they cannot ship them out. It will take multiple attempts to reach anyone at their bookstore. Plus, books are a lot less expensive on other sites and hassle-free to order. I will not now, nor anytime in the future ever recommend this school. I pay them money to be ignored, and so will you. Spend your money at a college that actually supports its students and are very interested in their success. I can guarantee this school is not concerned about its online students.

I've started looking around at Masters programs and came across this review site. The reviews have been quite helpful so I thought I'd quickly write one for Regis University since I completed my undergrad there.

First off, I would absolutely consider one of Regis's Masters programs if I weren't told by several people that it was taboo and looked bad on resumes. I believe someone called it Diploma or Unviersity Incest. Whatever it may be called it's a personal choice not to attain grad and undergrad from the same university, but for anyone considering Regis for the first time you're doing the right thing.

My personal experience with Regis Unviersity was fantastic. I spent several months researching Bachelors in Computer Science programs and I specifically wanted one that required higher level math courses. Not all CS degrees are equal and I saw some that were just pitifully weak in curriculum and others that were just poorly administered, i.e. video recordings of classes. Regis, at the time, used an online education site called WebCT. I believe they were bought out by Blackboard around the time I graduated. At Regis they believe strongly in both applied and theoretical study as well as student interactions. All courses required at least one research paper which, though painful, expanded our knowledge of the subject material substantially by promoting that extremely potent mixture of application and theory. The online tools are easy to use and I'm sure they're even better now than when I graduated back in 2007. Most of the professors were exceptional, and I really can't complain about any aspect of my education there. I believe they even have three programs that are ABET accredited and that says something.

For online degrees under $1,000/credit, Regis University stands afront all of its peers.

Overall, I recommend the Regis University online graduate program. The program has a strong ethics component which was attractive to me. The technology they use is also modern and user-friendly. To be successful you do need to be self-reliant. Course facilitators are available for phone calls but the online nature prevents deep interaction.

Strong reading and writing skills will help make this successful. As is the case with most colleges, some of the faculty were terrific while others seemed a bit egotistical. The other students represented a wide range of experiences and industries but all were mature professionals. I was able to complete this graduate program in 2.5 years at a very reasonable cost. I recommend that you look into Regis - overall the courses were interesting and helped build my skills.

Would You Recommend This College?

After attending two other online schools, I was finally satisfied with Regis. The academic standards upheld by the university transfer to the online program. That trait doesn't always transfer to non-traditional programs. I liked having the option of doing my classes on-ground if necessary. Regis is a good institution and one in which I am proud to call myself alum.

Regis MBA

Would You Recommend This College?

I really enjoyed the time spent earning my MBA. While it was challenging, and sometimes frustrating, it was well worth it once I was finished. These are some really tough economic times now, so it's important to bolster your knowledge base and resume as best you can in order to remain competitive in the job market. My Regis MBA has helped me to do that. Regis is well known for its quality education and emphasis of service to others. When you combine those two things with a solid business education, it makes a winning combination.

In short, the program was demanding at times, especially the first two foundation courses. Those two courses were a whirlwind of different knowledge bases needed to be competent in the realm of business. Coincidentally, they were also two of the more rigorous courses during the program. Every other class was meaningful and relevant, but required extensive study. One of the things I liked most about the Regis MBA program was its learning model. The curriculum was designed in a way to teach best and current business practices, teaching ethical behavior as a result of the school's jesuit background all the way. The majority of the faculty were working professionals with extensive experience and academic knowledge.

I feel this is an extremely effective teaching method and it helped me greatly during my time there. To culminate your B-School experience, you take a capstone course at the end of the program to summarize the things you've learned. Without divulging too much information, you work with other students managing a virtual company. This is both challenging and rewarding. If you're looking to break into Wall Street as a financial consultant, you may want to look elsewhere. However, if you're looking to gain practical and relevant business knowledge and help boost your resume for increased responsibility and career growth, then Regis is a great option.

Decent school, but be careful
-
Would You Recommend This College?
Regis is a good school, but one has to be careful with the degree one picks as the major. There are few degrees that are fully online, and most of those are computer degrees. The other degrees require classroom classes, and the classes are during the week and at night. For a stay-at-home mom of a toddler like myself whose husband works until midnight, it's impossible to attend those classes since it's impossible to find child care for those hours. So unfortunately I personally have to transfer to another school to get the degree I want. But, if you either want one of the online computer degrees or can attend the classroom classes, it's a great school.

Would You Recommend This College?

Regis University has perfected the art of online education. I began my online experience with a large competitor and I felt like a number. Regis's smaller classes and more personal attention to me, made me feel like I was a actually part of the campus life. Not to mention, their price was much more affordable!

Through email and instant messenger functions, I was able to keep in close contact with my classmates and my professors. Questions were answered promptly and with the detail one would expect from college level courses.

The classes I took, complete with online examples and interactive sessions, made full use of IT technology. My degree brought me an instant pay raise at work and I now have the potential to move as far as I want.
