Fullerton College has partnered with the University of Redlands to offer transfer students and staff a discount on tuition when they pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree at any one of the university’s eight campuses in Southern California. The discount is available to students attending University of Redlands School of Business or School of Education.
“We’re excited to partner with Fullerton College,” said Linda Purtill, director of University of Redlands South Coast Metro Campus. “Transferring students will receive 10 percent off their tuition when they enroll in an undergraduate program for business or management, and staff can receive 15 percent off.”
Employees of Fullerton College and their spouses or domestic partners are eligible for 15 percent off tuition when they enroll in a master’s program or a teaching credential program through Redlands School of Education.
According to Purtill, the partnership between Fullerton College and Redlands was renewed this year with many students already taking advantage of the discounts in prior years. Redlands has more than a hundred partnerships with businesses, community colleges, and school districts across Southern California, offering discounts and onsite education opportunities to help employees pursue training geared toward the working professional. Other community college partners include Chaffey College District, Riverside City College, and Saddleback College, among others.
“We’ve had staff members from Fullerton College who want to get their MBA or M.A. in Counseling,” Purtill said. “So they take classes at night when it’s more convenient for them. Our flexible schedules and small class sizes taught by adjunct faculty, who are experts in the fields they teach, allow students to take what they learn at night and apply it to the next day at work.”
Purtill said the 15 percent discount can be applied to a two-year master’s program at Redlands, which can cost anywhere from $29,000 to $39,000. University of Redlands is a liberal arts college, which helps set them apart from other universities because their teaching approach is guided on the principles of problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity, Purtill said. Class sizes range from 20-25 students, giving students the opportunity to learn from their peers and develop mentorships with instructors.
An open house will be held at University of Redlands South Coast Metro Campus in Santa Ana on March 10 where prospective students can learn about the universities’ programs and services.
The University of Redlands is a private, independent liberal arts university committed to providing a personalized education that allows students to make enlightened choices. Founded in 1907, Redlands emphasizes academic rigor, curricular diversity and innovative teaching.
