About SCS


A Redlands Education is for Everyone

In SCS, we believe a Redlands education is for everyone. Partnering with all the schools, the alumni association, corporations, and local governments, we offer a flexible learning environment at a fair price.

The School of Continuing Studies supports the Mission of the University of Redlands by

  1. providing a personalized education that frees students to make enlightened choices
  2. emphasizing academic rigor, curricular diversity, and innovative teaching
  3. welcoming intellectually curious students of diverse religious, ethnic, national, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
