A prospective student, any 8th-grade Roman Catholic male who has demonstrated superior academic ability, first completes an application that includes the composition of a short essay and then sits for Regis's own admission test. Of the approximately 1,000 students who sit for this test each year, about 230 are selected for two interviews with faculty or alumni. Around 135 students are admitted.
The large majority of applicants are admitted to Regis College each year; in 2016, the school accepted 97% of those who applied. Students with solid grades and a strong application have a good chance of being admitted. Along with an application, prospective students will need to submit high school transcripts, scores from the SAT or ACT, a personal essay, a resume, and a letter of recommendation.
Every school requires an application with the bare essentials - high school transcript and GPA, application form, and other core information. Many schools, as explained above, also require SAT and ACT scores, as well as letters of recommendation, application essays, and interviews. We'll cover the exact requirements of Regis University here.
