About Us

Regent Education - The admissions and financial aid experts.

Regent Education is the leading provider of software solutions designed to optimize the financial aid and enrollment processes for schools using BBAY and non-term enrollment models. Regent traces its beginnings to the founding of Computing Options, a student information system provider, in 1984. In 2006, a team of entrepreneurs incorporated Regent to acquire Computing Options as a platform for a standalone financial aid management system. Today, the eighth version of Regent’s financial aid management system processes aid for more than one million students every year, helping schools and students alike navigate challenging admissions and financial aid processes.

We’ve been building dedicated financial aid management software for more than six years, guided by our financial aid experts who collectively have more than 250 years of financial aid experience. As a result, Regent’s solutions are tailored to the needs of the financial aid specialists and enrollment managers at institutions using all enrollment models including:  SAY, BBAY and non-term. As a consequence, Regent’s solutions result in financial aid processes that are more efficient, have fewer errors, and offer better service to students. In short, Regent offers institutions unprecedented ability to automate every aspect of the financial aid process, attract new students, and empower students with advanced self-service solutions to accelerate the admissions process.

Regent takes pride in its employees and culture. Regent is headquartered in historic downtown Frederick, MD, in the city’s original firehouse and within walking distance of first-class restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options. Founded in 1745, Frederick is today a hub of arts, culture, and commerce less than hour from Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. Regent is backed by a syndicate of venture investors led by Chrysalis Ventures.
