"The program is amazing, but the fact that all of the classes are at night is difficult. I wish that there was more variety in the scheduling for classes. The program is incredibly holistic and mindful."

"I loved Regis! I think the small school feel really allowed me to thrive, getting to know my professors and peers very well. The staff was also tremendously helpful in my college journey. I struggled a bit in school before coming to college, but at Regis I really excelled and I'm eternally grateful for that."

"The Regis experience is tough but worth it. The instruction is a cut above the average online experience(I have 3 advanced degrees, 2 completed online at different institutions). I prize my Regis degree because it represents lots of work and pride. The school takes their honor code seriously. Ethics is a topic in every class. If you just want to google your way through, this is NOT the school for you. The instructors are highly successful in their industry and they are helpful.-- However, they expect you to work like you are a professional. If you really want to learn something this is an exciting place to be. Their MBA program ranks high nationally. They stay up to date on the latest in business. I am a life-long learner. I had been out of school for years when I went back for an MBA. A degree from Regis is one of the best things I did for myself. Their financial aid was most helpful. I got a loan from a Colorado bank at a better interest rate than other places."

"This is a very intense program for the working student with classes in the evening and weekends. It is difficult but I have learned an incredible amount of information and I have loved all of my classes thus far. My biggest con would be the availability of classes in the Colorado Springs Campus is slim for picking your schedule each semester but overall I love this program and Regis University!"

"The Doctor of Pharmacy program at Regis University is one of a kind for it features its incredible Team-Based-Learning style that enhances students' learning abilities to work in the health field with other medical professionals."

"I really enjoyed my time at Regis University. The faculty members were personable, helpful and are truly there for your success! The class size is small and intimate, which really facilitated learning. The only con with this program was the cost, but my education is something I am willing to invest in."

"Pros = small program so you get more individualized attention with the professors Cons = little to no help with scholarships or other financial aid outside of government loans"

"I am now in my ninth course with the online program at Regis University. The faculty is for the most part disconnected from online students. I have had only one instructor who actually challenged the work submitted with the remainder giving an A for any work submitted. One facilitator was so obviously disconnected from the class that a paper which missed the submission deadline was actually given an A before it was submitted. I emailed the instructor to explain my situation and why the paper was late with no reply received. In the year I have been in the program a total of seventeen emails to my assigned advisor have gone unanswered. There has been absolutely no contact with the advisor from day one and overall this seems like a diploma mill. I could only transfer two classes to another college and am now so far in that it only makes sense to finish the program. Employers will see the degree and not the quality of instruction but in all honesty I would have preferred to have been challenged academically while pursuing my Masters."

"The biomedical sciences program is well known as an academic enhancement program so that students have more of a competitive edge in their medical/dental school applications. The DO school in CO has requested that students go to this program specifically, if they are lacking in some specific area (eq. clinical, research, academic). The program allows for an externship of the student's choosing to also enhance my medical school application and my resume. I am enjoying the accessibility of our program admin staff, the advisors, and the faculty."

"Regis is an excellent school. The faculty, staff and fellow students really make the program strong. Regis excels at valuing each student as an individual person and helping with strengths and areas of improvement. The small class sizes are excellent. The only cons about regis are that their IT department is a bit lacking and they do not have as much financial aid offer as I would like."

"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."

"Regis University is a Jesuit University, and therefore places a large emphasis on education. The small teacher to student ratio in addition to sharing the goal of higher education provides an amazing support base between staff, faculty, and students that is irreplacable both in academics, the profession of physical therapy, and creating a friendly community. Because the community surrounding Regis is small in size and slightly enclosed, it does require a little more effort to step outside of that setting and one's comfort zone to get exposed to new people and situations. However, they provide many opportunities to do so including opportunities to contribute to Global Health."

"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."

"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."
