Every member of our community is responsible for making the University of Redlands a safe and healthy place where we learn and thrive. Our individual choices impact those around us, and we must use sound judgment in light of the risks posed by COVID-19.

This document University of Redlands COVID-19 Student Expectations provides specific student expectations that we must follow to protect the health of our community. Read this entire document carefully and be prepared to faithfully abide by the expectations described.

College of Arts and Sciences undergraduate students, whether living on campus or in the community, are expected to uphold these expectations, while recognizing that they may change as we monitor and adjust to respond to COVID-19 and its variants.
