Your total grant amount for years 2-4 will remain constant at the tuition level from the first year.3

How do I know if I qualify for the Cal Grant?

Cal Grant awards are subject to the State of California budget revisions and are not final until May 2024. At this time, we are including estimated Cal Grant awards in financial aid offers for students who qualify under both the old and new Cal Grant requirements. 

What is not included in this guarantee?

The cost of fees, room, board, books, and supplies.

Note that this does not apply to students who qualify under the E3 entitlement. The E3 entitlement is specifically for students transferring from a community college to a UC or Cal State. You can find more information about your Cal Grant award at https://mygrantinfo.csac.ca.gov/.

2Grants and scholarships include all state, federal, and institutional awards. 

 3Total Grant amount assumes no change in State or Federal Grant money. The University of Redlands will not make up any loss of Federal or State grant money in years 2-4. The total grant amount also does not account for any increases in tuition in years 2-4.
