"I went to this school online and it was just too much religion for me. Religion was injected into every assignment and every conversation, and I'm saying this as a Christian. The 8 week course load for the Master's program is also extremely challenging, for a program made for people who have families and work full-time. I really don't understand how you can even work full-time while taking an 8 week course load. Slip up on one assignment and it's a downward hill from there. And then don't get me started on the overlapping classes, just when you are finished with one classes/course, there's another course you have to take so your constantly just struggling to keep up. There's also hidden classes that you have to take that no one even notifies you about. The advisor's are great but some of the professor's don't even care, that you have a life outside of school or work. I would NOT come back if given the opportunity."

"Regent University is a great college and graduate school. The professors push the students to be the best they can be. You’ll definitely walk away from Regent having learned your money’s worth and be able to use your education in the marketplace to earn a great living and make a difference."

"Excellent online program. I obtained an EdS degree in a little over 2 years. The professors gave excellent input into my learning. The online courses are well designed. Chosen textbooks were very educational. Advising was excellent and Spirit led. Christian ideals are interwoven into classes. Professors respect Christian ideas and will never undermine your faith as professors do in secular schools do. The school is very diverse in its student population. I would definitely recommend this online university to students seeking a graduate degree."

"Though Regent University claims to have a strong Christian foundation, they actually just worship the almighty dollar. They care more about how much money they have coming in than they do about providing a quality education. Of course, if you're looking for a degree that you will be ashamed to put on a resume, Regent is the school for you."

"This is a great school! During my engineering time there, the professors were very caring and made sure you received quality instruction. My dissertation chair was very responsive and encouraging. This is a Christian University grounded in the Word of God and committed to excellence!"
Highly recommend you find a better school.

"The MBA program at Regent was a horrible experience, especially if you plan on using military benefits. There are hardly any on-campus classes, and only online classes available during the summer, so youll rarely receive your full housing allowance. If I had known this, I would have gone to ODU instead. The courses are only 8 weeks long, which may sound great, but they assign a months worth of work in 2 weeks. You learn nothing of value at the end of your 8 weeks because youre just rushing to get work done. The summer sessions overlap so your struggling to finish work in one class while starting another. Additionally, many of the professors seem to be on some kind of power trip. They use intimidation and fear to get what they want, acting as if they are all powerful, and every allowance provided is a special gift. If you question anything, or debate a teacher on a grade or assignment, then youre called ungrateful. Professors are slow to respond, dont show up to class at all, or send you important messages using methods that you receive no notification for. This doesnt work for a program that should be designed for working adults, military, or people with families. No one actually teaches you unless you get an on-campus class. For online classes, you spend thousands of dollars to teach yourself things you dont know anything about. You spend hundreds on required books that you never even use, or only use once. There is the rare great professor, but theyre hard to to find. The advisors are a piece of work. You call and leave a message and no one gets back to you. You send a direct email and you get no response. You finally get someone and they dont even give you the right answers, or make you take more classes than youre supposed to. For a Christian school, they dont seem to have many Christian values."

"Regent University is one of the best universities for Christian Studies. Although the university offers most career choices the religious studies program is outstanding. The class choices were vast and exceptional for those entering into the ministry of Jesus Christ. I learned from some of the best and brightest professors. Not only are the tops in their field, they help you absorb the information, not just for rote learning. What I have learned has equipped me with knowledge that will take me to the next level of learning in order that I may offer my giftedness to those who wish to learn the vastness of Christ and all that he offers those who follow him. Although I attended Regent University online it was no problem reaching out to the professors for help. There was usually less than a twenty four hour turnaround for answers to my questions. I also had the opportunity to message some of my instructor and the help was immediate. I would highly recommend Regent to anyone who wishes to further their education in any field of study. The university has excellent services and the campuses are nestled in to a beautiful area in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Not only are the campuses beautiful they are state of the art. Each hall is easily accessible to those with disabilities and staff there are always willing to go the extra mile for their students. I could not have asked for a better education than that at Regent."

"I was recruited by them after inquiring about an online degree that allowed one to study abroad. I was assured that i was able to continue taking courses year round like the school I was currently attending ( as to not fall behind in my degree plan) I was assured that the online course schedule was nearly exactly the same as the current school. EVERY single on of these was inaccurate. I would have had to pay nearly 3xs tuition (campus) to study abroad, the financial advisor assigned to me completely forgot to budget in my summer classes, thus resulting in me falling an entire semester behind and the course schedules required me to log on nearly everyday, and the professors are not understanding. (which as an adult in a full time career was impossible.) Every 6 weeks or so i would receive a call about my financial aid not being completed and me owing money, or that they needed my transcripts (which i had to send 5 times in a matter of 6 months...seriously y'all NOT and exaggeration). Ultimately I transferred out in less than a year back to my previous school. I figured it was a fluke, bad staffing so getting ready for grad programs I figured I would try them out again, especially being a Christian school...they have been blowing up my phone excited for me to start just to tell me that I owe another school money and they can't accept me....even though they did for undergrad. Anyway just a forewarning online is NOT the way to go with them, and be ready to babysit your finances and coursework."

"This school is a joke. They get you to sign up and don't tell you about the extra class that you have to take. I started attending Regents after recieving a Masters from a SUNY, all online. All schools now a days use pretty much the same things as it comes to black board and other online tools. However, Regents, if you have a masters or not, requires you to take this class that is a complete waste of time, especially if you are taking another Masters degree. I will not be graduating from this school, I will be looking for another."

"This online Masters program is challenging, but very rewarding! The courses force you to study. They have the entire online program very well formatted and thought through. I work full time, so online is the best for me. Im so proud that I have graduated!"
