Military and Veterans Aid
The following resources can help you to evaluate your educational options, help you make and informed decision, and create the best plan to achieve your educational goals.
Active Duty Military Tuition Discount
University of Redlands honors our active duty military and spouses with a $250 per-unit discounted tuition rate. This discount is in line with the military's per-unit reimbursement amount. Ask your campus staff for more details or download the U.S. Military Reduced Tuition Rate Policy document.
The GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals who qualify. Please visit the VA website for additional information and to apply for benefits.
Yellow Ribbon Program
If you’re a veteran of the U.S. military with three years of active duty that began after 9/11, the new Yellow Ribbon Program can reduce your higher education costs.
The Yellow Ribbon Program features dollar-for-dollar matching between universities and the federal government in order to give veterans more education options, including private liberal arts colleges. Yellow Ribbon funds can only be used for tuition and fee costs.
Federal Student Aid
Federal Student Aid, an office of the US Department of Education, provides students with information on paying for college, types of aid, eligibility requirements, repaying student loans, and applying for aid at StudentAid.ed.gov/home. Students can apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at FAFSA.ed.gov.
For more information about the federal aid programs that the University of Redlands participates in, please visit the Student Financial Services pages.
Financial Aid Shopping Sheet
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a standardized form that is provided to students who indicate on their application for admission that they are using VA benefits, and apply for Federal Financial Aid by completing the FAFSA. You will receive the Shopping Sheet in addition to a financial aid award letter. The form is intended to provide clear information about costs and financial aid to help you make informed decisions about which postsecondary institution to attend. The Shopping Sheet includes grant and scholarship amounts, net costs, graduation rates, loan default rates, median borrowing, and estimated monthly loan payments after graduation.
The University of Redlands College Cost of Attendance shown is based on students enrolled full-time, classified as a resident, living on their own, and is inclusive of estimated housing and meals, books and supplies, transportation, and other education costs.
College Scorecards in the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center make it easier for you to search for a college that is a good fit for you. You can use the College Scorecard to find out more about a college’s affordability and value so you can make more informed decisions about which college to attend at http://collegecost.ed.gov/scorecard/.
The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) fulfills a Congressional mandate to collect, collate, analyze, and report complete statistics on the condition of American education; conduct and publish reports; and review and report on education activities internationally. NCES provides a tool to assist you in searching for and comparing colleges and universities at http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/.
