Regent University and the School of Law are committed to recognizing and rewarding academic excellence. Regent Law awarded more than $ million in scholarships and grants to the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 student body. In recent years, more than 95 percent of our JD students have received assistance through some form of financial aid. Regent Law students typically finance their law school education through a combination of personal and family resources, income from employment, educational loans, grants, and scholarship assistance. Additionally, some students secure on-campus graduate assistant positions to supplement their income.
Admission to the School of Law is competitive. Students are admitted only for the fall semester. Since we believe that applicants are more than just numbers, selection for admission is based upon a thorough evaluation of all factors in an applicant’s file: Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score(s) and writing sample; undergraduate and graduate school grades; recommendations; and the personal statement. Careful consideration is given to an applicant’s professional experience, volunteer or community service, unusual achievements, special circumstances, honors, economic hardship, undergraduate degree, undergraduate school, graduate degree, graduate school, and grade trends. Because it is presumed that Evening Program students will have full-time employment, the Admissions Committee places greater weight on the quantifiable performance predictors for applicants to the Evening Program.
