Hi! So we do both actually. Our Merit Scholarship students are automatically considered for it when they apply to Redlands. We will use your GPA in your transcript plus your overall application to determine how much merit scholarship you will receive. If you and your family submit the FAFSA application, we will see how much additional you can qualify for. Here is the link to our Student Financial Services office to learn more.

Redlands has a great community and everyone is very welcoming. The campus is not the most updated, but the money clearly goes to other student needs instead. Great financial aid as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food isn't great. Meals are pretty hit or miss and if you have allergies or other food restrictions you will likely have some trouble.

The University of Redlands offered me a substantial scholarship. The mascot is adorable and I've met some of my best friends on campus. The location is okay as long as you have a car.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The accessibility on campus is terrible and close to non-existent, the meal plan is mandatory if you live on campus but the food is mediocre at best, and the student population is not very diverse or accommodating towards international students.

I like the small class sizes. It allows a very personal connection with professors and classmates. It is extremely important to get to know professors because they have connections and information that they are willing to share especially when they know you well. They may even reach out to you with opportunities.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Sometimes getting into certain classes is a little difficult due to high demand and the school being small.



What I liked about the University of Redlands is that it's not as high-stakes as other universities in the state that I was being pressured to apply to but you really have to be wary of the people here. Watch your step.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The people.

Everyone at the university is very welcoming. I am enjoying my time there as a student and I can't wait to see what the next 3 1/2 years hold for me. The staff is very helpful and willing to assist you with anything you need. The students are also very friendly and helpful. There are also several nice places to go to study whether it's inside in a lounge area or outdoors. Also, I love how green the school is because of the trees. I personally love nature, so that's a plus for me.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I haven't had any bad encounters so far at Redlands which is good.



I’ll admit, I didn’t know what to expect going in. What I found was a community filled with surprisingly nice people. As someone that tries to be nice to others all the time, I was still surprised to find people act in the same way. The staff are always willing to help you and can guide you on your path to completing your major.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food could definitely be better, and there isn’t a whole lot to do (besides partying and hanging with friends of course). Granted, these things don’t really bother me at all.
