Financial Aid Award Terms: Your program’s financial aid award year is split into three terms: Fall, Spring and Summer (example below). Your financial aid eligibility is contingent upon your registration in at least two classes (or at least 6 units) per term. If you are currently "waived" from a core course and wish to be financial aid eligible in that term, please contact your School of Business Student Service Manager to discuss options for filling this "gap." Redlands offers a number of elective courses in various instructional areas that you can utilize to remain financial aid eligible.
