Welcome to the University of Redlands!

It is a pleasure for us to extend a word of welcome to you on behalf of everyone at the University. You have chosen to join a community dedicated to supporting you as you realize your potential, pursue your passion and make memories.

As part of your enrollment to the University, all new first year students are required to submit important documents prior to attending New Student Orientation.  Please review the First-Year Student Checklist to see all items required for submission.  If you are an entering transfer student, please review the New Transfer Student Checklist as dates and requirements may differ.  In addition, you should have received (with your Welcome letter) your login information from the Office of Information Technology, which provides specific login information to access the University’s portal called MyRedlands. Please note that this login information is different than the one you used to check your application status throughout the admissions process.

As you prepare to join our community in the fall, we invite you to visit us on Saturday, July 7 for Redlands Connections Day. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to make connections with your peers and current students and to learn more about academics, resources and campus life prior to New Student Orientation. More information and an rsvp link will be sent to you later this spring.

New Student Orientation, required for all new students, begins on Wednesday, August 29 and continues through Monday, September 3. During Orientation, you will begin to settle into your new community, connect with classmates, faculty and student leaders, meet with your academic advisor and register for classes. Your first day of classes will follow on Tuesday, September 4. More information about these upcoming events can be found in the online First-Year Student Checklist or the New Transfer Student Checklist.

We strive every day to make the University of Redlands a great place to live and learn. This means doing all that we can to put you, the student, first. What we hope we receive in return is your uncompromising commitment to learning, not just within the geographical confines of a classroom, but across the varied landscape of the student experience that is unique to the University of Redlands. What club will you join? What theatre production will you attend? What alternative point of view will you consider and debate? What community will you serve? Whose life will you impact, besides your own, in profound and enriching ways?

We are glad you are becoming a “Bulldog for Life” and we welcome you to the University of Redlands.

Och Tamale!
