Quick Financial Help:
1. How will the billing statements be sent to us?
The billing statements will be available online on your student's Self-Service Portal in the Student Finance section. Statements are sent out in early July for the fall semester and mid-November for the spring semester. Your student can access this via MyRedlands, and can enroll you as a proxy user. As a proxy user, you have your own login credentials to view your student's account information and make online payments. You can refer to this page for more information.
2. Can we release your student's information to you?
Our office takes great care to safeguard your student's personal information in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). We do not release protected personal information unless specifically authorized to do so by the student.
All students who wish to have their information accessible by parents or other designated persons should complete the Authorization for Release of Information Form and turn this in to the Registrar's Office. For more information, please visit The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act web site.
3. Are you interested in obtaining a parent loan?
Please see the information here regarding the Federal Parent PLUS loan available to parents of dependent students.
You can also view our alternative loan page and private loan options, available to parents, grandparents, and other parties who have a vested interest in the student.
4. What if the FAFSA does not accurately reflect my family's current situation?
Certain changes in family circumstances may affect a family's ability to pay educational expenses and can be used as the basis for a Special Circumstances Review. Eligible circumstances for review include, but are not limited to, loss or reduction of employment, separation or divorce, unusual medical expenses not covered by insurance, and loss of benefits such as social security or child support.
Request for review must be documented using the Special Circumstances Appeal form. Requests will be reviewed by a Student Financial Services committee and will reach a decision in approximately two weeks. Please note: Students who wish to be considered for an appeal must file a FAFSA before an appeal can be considered.

University of Redlands alumni from around the country have partnered with the Office of Alumni & Community Relations to host a new series of events that invited recent graduates and alumni who have recently moved to meet fellow Bulldogs in their area.
As a result of the University's commitment to being a residential campus, all students must live on campus and have a meal plan. The requirement is for the duration of their time as a student unless they are 23 years of age or older, living with parents or legal guardians within 30 miles of campus, or are married or in a registered domestic partnership. Please note, housing is not guaranteed for students under the age of 16 or over 23 years old and is only provided if space is available. Only students who have received off-campus approval from Residence Life and Housing or in partnership with Student Financial Services (SFS) are exempt from the housing and meal plan requirement.
Any new student who meets one of the exemptions, for example living with a parent within 30 miles of campus, must complete the optional off-campus questions included at the end of the New/Transfer Student Housing Intention Form for consideration. This is the only housing form needed for both on and off-campus consideration.
Once a student receives confirmation of their off-campus approval from Residence Life and Housing, their checklist will be updated to reflect completing the Meal Plan selection step. While participating in a meal plan is permitted for off-campus students, it is not required of students approved off-campus.
The University requires all CAS undergraduate students enrolled in nine or more units to have health insurance that provides access to local health care. Health insurance must be maintained throughout the year. After the September 20, 2022 deadline, students who did not submit proof of insurance will be enrolled in the annual insurance coverage. Check out the Student Health Insurance Plan page for more information and steps to waive or enroll.
Fall Semester Bills go out in early July. For more information about important billing dates, please refer to Important Dates | University of Redlands
Starting Fall 2022, Anderson Hall will be closed for renovations and our first-year student communities will now be housed in East, North, and Williams Halls. These communities share similar amenities, including air conditioning and hall-style bathrooms. More information on pricing and floor layouts can be found on the Residence Life and Housing website.
In the residence halls, the furniture provided includes a bed, desk, set of drawers or a dresser, closet or wardrobe, and chair. In the apartments, limited living room furniture, as well as a refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher, are provided.
Almost all the beds in the residence halls can be raised with a request to our Facilities team once students arrive on campus. Bed risers that cup the legs are permitted, although please know risers are used at the student’s risk. Other types of rising items, such as cinder blocks, are not allowed.
While it depends on the size of the trunk and the adjusted height of the bed, most trunks do fit under beds. However, it is recommended that storage containers be purchased after move-in to ensure that proper measurements can be taken.
No, but microwaves are available in the community kitchens in each hall or apartment.

Parking on campus is free, although students must pick up a parking pass from Public Safety. Students without passes may receive tickets from Public Safety. If a student receives a parking ticket and wants to pay it off or has questions, Public Safety is the place to go.
No, unfortunately there is no indoor bike parking on campus.Multiple bike racks are available throughout campus for students to lock their bikes. To help prevent the theft of bicycles, Public Safety recommends securing bicycles with a high-security U-lock attached to an immovable object in open, well-lit, and highly visible areas. Public Safety also highly recommends registering your bike with the Department of Public Safety and the City of Redlands. If it is found, they can return it to you. Contact Public Safety for more information.
Parents are welcome to park in any open space that is not reserved. If you are close to the front of the building when unloading, please move your vehicle to a space further away once you are finished to allow another family to use the space near the building.
The University does not offer bike rentals. However, students can access our Outdoor Programs bike repair shop should they bring their bike to campus. Students who use the bike repair shop on campus will only be charged for the cost of the parts.
There is no car sharing option available at this time.
