Thank you for your interest in the University of Redlands School of Business International Programs. Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our programs.
To secure your place on one of our programs, we’ll need a deposit in the form of a check or credit card payment of $500. This deposit will be applied toward payment of your travel costs. Please note that the deposit is refundable up to 90 days prior to trip departure. After that time, the deposit is non-refundable.
You will need to complete and submit your Registration Packet by mail or in person, because we need your original signature (Note: there are separate packets for Graduate and Undergraduate students, as well as for Alumni/Guests)
Please place an “X” by the global business or capstone course you will be substituting for your study abroad course. The “Acceptance of Study Policies” form can be scanned or faxed to 909.335.5233. Please enter your name on the registration form as it appears (or will) appear on your passport. If you do not have a current passport (one that does not expire within 6 months of the travel dates), please work on getting that ASAP.
Yes, study abroad will typically replace your international business, or in certain cases, your capstone course:
Travel costs are not usually finalized until about three months prior to departure and are dependent on location and duration of the program. European programs typically cost between $4,000-$4,500, and the Asian programs are typically less than $4,000. The costs also fluctuate due to currency exchange rates and fuel surcharges.
All airfare, bus and coach passes, hotel accommodations, tour fees, lectures, corporate visits, and some of your meals. Students need to bring money for meals, souvenirs, and for personal sightseeing excursions that are not included. (Note: If a student selects the "Land Only" option, they are responsible for air transportation from and to LAX (or other U.S. airport) and the foreign destination and ground transportation costs from and to the foreign airport to the hotels.
Yes, we encourage our students to bring family members and/or friends (must be at least 16 years old or with approval of the program director). The travel costs will be the same for your guest, but of course they will not have to pay tuition. They may attend all program activities, including lectures/corporate visits but are not required to do so.
A $500 deposit is due at time of registration to secure your place on one of our study abroad programs. Additional payments are due approximately three months and 45 days prior to departure, depending on the program. You may pay for the travel costs in full at any time prior to departure.
Yes, please view our Scholarships Page for more information.
Beginning two to three months prior to departure three mandatory pre-departure workshops will be held on Saturdays at the University of Redlands Main Campus. We will notify you of the pre-departure dates as they are set. Usually we hold one session at 60 or more days from departure, one 30-45 days out and one about two to three weeks before departure.
If you complete the form with blue ink, you can scan it in color to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, you may mail or drop it off in person at the Dean's Office in Hornby Hall on the main campus.
Yes. If you do not have health insurance which will cover you while abroad, you will need to purchase a two-week travel policy. There are many websites that sell travel health insurance (prices vary based on your age). A Travel Release Form and Medical Release Form will be sent to you after registration, so please note that you will need to gather the required medical insurance information.
This varies by program, however each study abroad course will have a detailed itinerary that will be sent to all registered students and guests about three months prior to departure.
Typically no. We handle the flight arrangements through a travel agency, which provides us with a group rate that is usually lower than someone could arrange individually. If you would like to deviate from the group travel, then you will make your own flight arrangements, with the understanding that you will be at the proper destination when the program begins and ends. If you wish to bring a guest, they will travel with you and the group for the entire two-week period.
