Regent Education – Simply Automated

Regent Education is the leading provider of SaaS-based financial aid software to automate financial aid verification, packaging, and disbursement. Regent automation supports both traditional academic years and borrower-based academic years (BBAYs) using standard and nonstandard terms. Regent also automates financial aid for self-paced programming such as competency-based education (CBE) using subscription periods or nonterm models.

We also are the only provider to seamlessly support multiple enrollment models concurrently, including transfers from one model to another. We were architected from the ground up to simplify the most complex financial aid scenarios. It’s why 25% percent of the top 20 online programs in the US partner with Regent Education to automate their financial aid process


Our comprehensive and cloud-based financial aid software offers institutions an unprecedented ability to increase efficiency, mitigate compliance risks, expand enrollment, improve the student experience, and enhance financial aid lifecycle visibility.
