Divinity School-specific options for student involvement include the Center for Global Missions, Center for Renewal Studies, Center for Worship, and the Youth and Urban Renewal Center.
Students and their families will also find numerous activities in the surrounding Virginia Beach area, with a number of museums (including the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center) as well as over 200 city parks and, of course, no shortage of beaches.
Regent offers onsite apartments for its graduate students, including divinity school students. Eligible students may apply for housing in Regent Village (two - three bedroom apartments). Students are responsible for electricity; all other utilities are included in the rent. Resident Life also helps students find off-campus apartments.
Regent offers very generous financial aid to its students depending on the program and the student's background, up to 100% of the cost of tuition. Regent uses several criteria in deciding how much a student receives, including academic achievement, need, and potential for ministry. In addition to scholarships, Regent offers matching church grants, military discounts, and student loans.
