As an independent liberal arts university, Redlands is dedicated to providing students with an individualized pathway to earning a master's degree. Indeed, according to Fiske Guide to Colleges, Redlands is “a place where students receive all the personal attention and intellectual stimulation they could want.”

We prepare each student to succeed from day one. When a student enrolls, they are paired with a student success coach. Student success coaches ensure students have the support to thrive in their program and graduate. Redlands online also offers small class sizes. Courses are designed to encourage active participation, so the virtual learning community is lively with ongoing discussion. The low student-to-faculty ratio also allows students to work closely with professors. Students communicate with them regularly and receive extensive individual attention. Moreover, our professors understand the needs of postgraduate learners who have a career and personal commitments. They strive to bring out the best in every student.
