Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.
Calculate your net cost
In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.
Out-of-State Tuition Out-of-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who do not meet the state’s or institution’s residency requirements. Out-of-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students not residing in the locality in which they attend school.
Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.89 Average Rating
While this school is fairly expensive they are very open to helping students with all sorts of financial aid. I am a recipient of two scholarships from the school as well as federal aid. The campus itself is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth the price. I would also consider the academic excellence on par with the price I pay for them.
Alaina from Portland, OR
Paying for college was the most important thing for me to consider when choosing a college. University of Redlands is pretty expensive but they offer so many opportunities for students so that they are able to attend here. Besides from loans, they offer a great financial package such as scholarships for your academics and talents you may have. I got several scholarships for my academics, and grants. University of Redlands definitely shows you that they want you as a Bulldog and to be part of their community. Whatever questions you have academically or financially, they definitely have answers. I asked a ton of questions regarding financial aid and they gave me options and advice on what I should do.
And with the services they offer, it is definitely worth every penny. It seems as if the university wants to show their students that every penny counts and they want you to feel like you’ve invested well in your education by coming to University of Redlands. So far, they’ve showed me!
Jeanette from Honolulu, HI

The school helps a lot with financial aid and getting student work programs going. You will likely have to take out a loan, but I would always choose Redlands if I had the option.

The school is extremely dedicated to wellness. There is a free health center, free counseling centers, and free psychiatrists. There's also guided mediation and yoga sessions every week.

During finals there are a lot of programs put on by students for students including coloring, cookie decorating, professional massages, and bounce houses.

Finally, they are extremely caring about emotional and physical disabilities. This includes giving you alternative assignments for classes, allowing you to have a support animal, hiring another student to take notes anonymously for you etc.

With that said, the worst thing you can do at this school is move off campus. The school is extremely caring, but a lot of the people in California are assholes. It is absolutely not worth the stress to try and live off campus, and living on campus brings a lot more safety, security, and happiness to your life here.
Holly from Jonesville, MI
This school offers up many services to students such as general medicine if you get sick, guest speakers, themed dinners and more for 10 dollars or less. This school is a great school for the amount spent on attending it. I would recommend looking up what you can do for free (free monthly movie night at the Krikorian) or for almost little money.
Kelly from LA Quinta, CA
Financial Aid aside from FAFSA is available, merit scholarships as well!
Cindy from Woodhaven, NY
While the tuition is not cheap, it is pretty comparable to MBA programs in the area (Pepperdine, UCLA, CSUN, etc.) For the money I pay, I feel there is a great return on investment. I just returned from a study abroad trip in Sweden/Denmark and I am very pleased with the instructors and the overall experience. I encourage any student who has the opportunity to study abroad. It is very important to see different perspectives, especially for business students.
Kenneth from Sherman Oaks, CA
The school is sooooo affordable! When someone looks at the actual price of the school, some may think it's a lot but really, the school gives us awesome financial-aid packages and most students don't have to pay as much as the tuition requires.
Ashley from Redlands, CA
You pay for the experience when attending Redlands. The University of Redlands is all about getting students to think critically and analytically, at least for my intended major in Business it has been. You get a great amount of one on one help from Professors when it is needed and they are available for office hours and by appointment.
Zachary from Lake Arrowhead, CA
This is an expensive private school, but most classes have less than thirty students and are taught by faculty, not teaching assistants. The college is generous in its scholarships and financial aid is readily available.
