Welcome to the University of Redlands!

Welcome New Fall 2020 Students!

It is a pleasure for us to extend a warm 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 passions and make memories.

Prior to attending New Student Orientation, all new students are required to submit important enrollment documents. Please review the New Student Checklist at www.redlands.edu/welcomenewstudents to see what items you need to submit. In addition, log into the MyRedlands portal now to familiarize yourself with the various tools you will be using throughout your time at Redlands.

Throughout the summer, you will receive additional communication from a variety of campus community members. For example, your faculty advisor, who is also your First Year Seminar Professor, will reach out to you to introduce themselves. We hope you take these opportunities to connect before arriving to campus.

New Student Orientation, required for all new students, begins on Thursday, September 3 and continues through Monday, September 7. During Orientation, you will settle into your new community, connect with classmates, faculty, and student leaders, meet with your academic advisor, and finish registering for classes. The first day of classes will follow on Tuesday, September 8.

We strive every day to make the University of Redlands a great place to live and learn. This means we do all that we can do to put you, the student, first. In return, we hope we inspire an uncompromised commitment to learning, and 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!
