Regent has established itself as the leading financial aid software provider for schools offering non-traditional enrollment models, including non-term, Borrower Based Academic Year (BBAY), and Competency Based Education (CBE) models. Non-traditional models are increasing rapidly, as less than 30 percent of students now meet the definition of a traditional student. Regent attributes much of its growth to the increasing number of institutions offering CBE and non-traditional models.
