Military-Friendly School

Redlands is ranked top 15 percent nationally by GI Jobs

REDLANDS, Calif. (Sept. 18, 2012) G.I. Jobs has named the University of Redlands a “2013 Military-Friendly School” for offering the best education, value and welcome to military students. The ranking recognizes top colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.

Factors weighed in the ranking process include:

  • Academics—the University of Redlands is Approved for Veterans training, has regional accreditation and gives ACE credit for military training and experience.
  • Financial benefits— tuition discounts and scholarships for military students, allows military students called to active service the opportunity to return to school without penalty, and the University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. 
  • Flexibility— evening and weekend programs at locations throughout Southern California.

“The University of Redlands has a rich tradition of educating our military students that goes back to WWII and the V-12 Navy College Training Program. Since that time the University has continued to support and educate active duty, reserve, veterans and the families of the different branches of the US Armed Forces. As a veteran, I am honored to be a part of an institution that has so consistently provided a welcoming atmosphere, quality education and culture of excellence to its military members and their families,” said Cheryl Kleeman, Veterans Affairs specialist/certifying official at the University of Redlands.

The GI Jobs survey results that comprise the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
