8 General IT Info University courses are delivered entirely or in part through computer- mediated learning; therefore, it is imperative that students have access to computer systems that meet the minimum requirements outlined at Regent University does not teach or train students in basic computer use outside of specific undergraduate courses. Technical questions concerning personal hardware, software, or telecommunication support should be directed to appropriate vendor(s). There are 4 computer labs on campus for student use. Although labs are open when the University is open, labs can be reserved and unavailable at times. Wireless Internet access is available in all buildings.

9 Regent Important Overview The official means by which Regent’s faculty and staff communicate with you Important messages from your professors, advisors, and others will be in this You are responsible for checking daily (M-F) You are responsible for responding to any inquiry from any Regent faculty or staff should not be ignored is not akin to texting, tweeting, or Facebook messages

10 Degree-seeking vs Non-degree seeking

11 Early College = Non-degree What does this mean? Since you are designated primarily as a high school or home school student, you will be a non-degree seeking student while enrolled in the Early College program. The primary purpose of this program is to help high school and home school students complete their respective diplomas, not to get a college degree. What’s different? You receive a discounted tuition rate You do not have a “catalog year” – that is, starting in a particular year does not hold your place in that catalog You will not earn a degree from Regent while still enrolled in your school Some student programs are not available to you

12 Early College = Non-degree Of course, however, you still must… Complete all requirements found in the course’s syllabus (i.e., courses are taught at a college level and typically require more work) Adhere to the conduct code (e.g., academic integrity, Christ-like behavior) Abide by university policies (e.g., attendance and participation, etc.). Follow university procedures Submit payments and required paper work by their deadlines In the end… You can expect a challenging and rewarding learning experience Courses completed at Regent will appear on a non-degree student transcript All course grades will be reflected, including grades of “W” “WF,” and “I.”
