Global Ambassadors 15_16

University of Redlands welcomes students from over 23 nations. These students are supported by the International Student Advisor and Program Assistant who assists all issues that arise during their time at the University of Redlands, from visa, employment, change of status, reinstatement through questions about cultural references.

Despite our relatively small numbers, international students are actively involved in clubs and organizations and many choose to make presentations to ensure that U.S. students receive information on other countries. This is useful when events occur in places that would otherwise seem remote and unconnected to the University.

Most international undergraduate students live on-campus and College of Arts and Science students under the age of 23 are require to live on-campus. Although some graduate students live on-campus, most live off-campus in local apartments. Regardless, every effort is made to accommodate international students and keep them engaged in campus activities.

New International Students:

Once students are admitted to the University of Redlands, they will be issued an I-20 Form. Degree seeking students will need this form in order to apply for F-1 student visa at the U.S. Embassy in their country. 

Exchange visiting students will receive a DS-2019 Form and need to apply for the J-1 visa. 

We will provide students with information on the procedures for applying for the visa, paying the SEVIS fee as well as the documents required for entry into the U.S.

Please contact about International Student Orientation.
