"I wouldn't recommend this school to any active duty member of the military. The core Computer Science curriculum is useful and well thought out, but most of my issues have come from interactions with the faculty and student advisors. The times I have been placed on detachments or sent anywhere that didn't have an immediate connection I would get in contact with the professor and I rarely ever received an extension in any of these circumstances. I was evacuating my family during a hurricane and the professor at the time gave me hell for even asking. In Norway (which I explained to the course facilitator before the class) there were periods I was unable to get access and I would submit my projects as soon as I would receive any sort of connectivity. The most recent issue is I spoke directly with a course advisor stating that since the Tuition Assistance deadline could not be met so I shouldn't be enrolled in a class. She signed me up anyways (without calling to notify me) and I'm now sitting on a $900 dollar bill from the school for a class that is already 3 out of 5 weeks in with no possible way to get through the class even if every assignment was perfect from this point on. Overall I'm disappointed to say the least I think the curriculum would work well if you were already working in the field of computer science and you just needed the seal of credibility from the school to move up in your career. If your an active service member the faculty is not military friendly and anything that comes up from a work up, deployment schedule, or detachment will be treated as a massive boon to you. Most of the instructors I have interacted with for my core curriculum in mathematics or computer science have been great, but the administrative system around the school really bogs things down unfortunately."

"I would strongly recommend Regis University. Particularly, if you are a student who needs/wants an personal education experience. At Regis, you have an opportunity to received one on one assistance from professors who care deeply about their students. Regis is not flashy. It is not "state of the art". However, it does provide a unique and powerful community for students to grow and learn with one another. The campus is gorgeous, active, and supportive."

"Worse experience. I anticipated Practicum - what a joke! The professor had no idea how to introduce new students to the curriculum, he assumed we all "just knew." The professors offer no guidance - they're there to make extra money. No care is given to curriculum or students. Go to DU or UCD - Regis is a nightmare."

"My experience with this University was horrendous. They had a cyber attack that disabled all of their major systems at the beginning of the year. Nothing was working: their phones, student/faculty email, essential online learning software, and more. They lost all of my information, but what is worse: a cyber criminal now HAS all my personal information. The situation was ongoing for months. It was very apparent the school had absolutely no Business Continuity Plan in the event of a cyber attack or the proper cyber defenses to prevent an attack. I was not registered for my class until way after it started because they lost all my information. The administrative faculty at this institution do not communicate with each other at all and handle overly-specific sets of issues. It's assembly-line administration. The problem is: none of them know who you need to contact for a certain issue and frequently give you wrong information altogether. You have a "Career Coach" who is supposed to advice you but knows next to nothing and certainly has no authority to actually handle any issues. You have about a dozen departments, but several departments will not even talk to you directly and assign a "representative" you have to talk to that knows nothing and has no authority to resolve anything. To handle any admin issue (and believe me, you will have administrative issues at this college), you will end up going through about 5 people, multiple emails, multiple phone numbers, and re-explaining your problem each time. Their entire admin system is completely out-of-date and overly complex for no reason. Their learning software is also completely out-of-date (WorldClass and WebAdvisor). It's like using a Windows program from 2001. Slow and not user friendly. The only upside is they outsource the textbook and lab part of the class to a third party (Zybooks) but unfortunately, you have to pay $100 extra for that. Also: if taking an online class, don't even think about using your tablet or smart phone. This outdated system has little versatility. To my military friends, this university went back on it's commitment to honor my military tuition rate. I am active-reserve and not eligible for the Tuition Assistance (TA) benefit. Their school generally uses TA as proof of active status. I submitted alternate proof of my active status that I was told it would be perfectly acceptable. Nope. They emailed me months later and said I HAVE to use TA (which I am not eligible for) to receive the active military rate. Pretty disgraceful in my opinion. It was at that point I decided this University has zero integrity and was not the place for me. When the biggest challenge you have is administrative issues and not academics, there are some deep problems going on. For anyone considering Regis, I strongly encourage you to look elsewhere."

"Dont even bother to apply. Only want your application money. Whole process was a joke. Told at end due to age rigorous curriculum would be to much for me. Interview process was one minute. I sent info and then the person would say he didnt get it. When I complained they used my interview with the guy to deny me and my age. Pitiful."

"I want to be fair in this assessment, so bear that in mind when I say this program is a total joke. Literally anyone can get an A in any course here. I intentionally wrote the stupidest things I could think of in discussion forums and was never corrected. Not once. The program claims to prepare you for industry exams like the CISSP, but the fact of the matter is that you'll still need 4 years of experience before you even qualify to sit for that exam. The master's degree itself is worthless. No employer cares that I have it and they care even less that I got a 4.0. If you're considering this program, just stop. You're only going to associate yourself with a pedophile religion (some of those pedos actually worked for Regis!) and wind up eyeballs deep in debt with nothing more to show for it than a paperweight degree. A couple of the faculty are great and actually care, but the school itself feels like a degree mill. If you really want a foot in the door in cyber security, pursue certifications."

"Terrible program! Don't waste your money - unqualified professors, bad to alumni, incompetent alumni office. Got to UCD or DU - they really help alumni and have good programs. MSIA program has adjunct professors because they don't want to pay benefits or W2s - only a couple are good - all others(especially technical professors) are there to make more money and don't care about teaching."

"As a BSCS grad I can tell you first hand that this is a rigorous major. This is not an information systems it IT degree. It's a true computer science program akin to what you would experience at a nationally ranked engineering school. Remember, the classes are the same as what you would get in a full semester. They have the same reading and programming assignments. So if you can't learn algorithm analysis, operating systems, theory of computation, linear algebra, discrete math, probability and statistics for engineers, or similar type courses in 8 weeks look for another major. For those bashing Regis on this site please don't lash out at the professors or the university because you flunked out. It's a poor student that blames the professor. Regis uses canvas for its online course work which is much better than blackboard. The professors I've had were all excellent. Some were trully exceptional. They were always quick to respond to my emails. I don't know about years in the past but Regis has hired more computer science and math professors from some top universities. I had professors who previously taught at Penn State, Colorado, U Denver, and other great schools. If you come to Regis and work hard you will be rewarded. I got accepted into two top-5 graduate computer science programs! Thanks Regis!"

"When I was looking for a university in order to obtain my bachelor's degree, I needed a flexible schedule, convenient accessibility, consistency, and time efficiency. I had a little girl to raise and I needed to attend a university that would work for me. My advisers at my local community college mentioned how Regis University was everything I was looking for. They would take my transfer credits, work with my schedule, offer online, and weekend courses, be empathetic with my external situation, and uphold my morals and values. Immediately, I knew this university was right for me. Once I began my courses, I knew it was a right fit. My instructors were organized, professional, and understanding. There was even a time where I had no one to watch my daughter and I had to be at a weekend class. I informed my professor of my situation and she welcomed my daughter into her classroom with open arms. That moment let me know that I had the upmost support in obtaining my educational goals. My adviser even noticed my dedication despite my situation and asked if I would be the keynote speaker at our 2011 graduation ceremony. Even to this day, my graduation ceremony is one of the greatest moments of my life. One attribute that did not appeal to me about this university was the cost. Being it was a private institution decreased opportunities to receive additional financial support. I will admit, it has been a few years since I have been enrolled in their university; therefore, their financial opportunities may have advanced. All in all, I had a great experience with Regis University. I would recommend this institution to others who are interested in obtaining a bachelor's degree."

"I'll start with the good: -It's a solid education, professors have been great. -Well respected on a local level in Colorado. Regional may be a stretch. -Decent networking opportunities. -Great career services office. -Great resources to help student's suceed. Cons: -They are an administrative nightmare and I will provide examples. -When first entering the program I was told I could only take one class at a time, I was then dinged on financial aid later because "I'm not considered a part or full time student yet." After fighting with them a bit to let me take more classes so I can graduate quickly, I was again dinged on financial aid "Oh we can only cover so much in a given semester" after being told I would be considered as a full time student. Now the tuition bills are flowing in, and they will not work with you to register for future classes nor provide any advice or assistance in getting it resolved. -My academic adviser left shortly after I started the program, not a big deal. It's been 10 months and I still do not have an adviser despite asking numerous times. -Every time I call the advisers regarding academic matters (registering etc...) a financial aid I get different responses. I am pretty much left on my own to figure it out. In summary, go if you want/need a solid education with great flexibility, but be prepared to fight them every step of the way regarding administrative matters. I would go to CU or Metro for my masters but Regis is the only school that offers the schedule I need. It is the only reason I am going to finish up here."
