The Redlands Accounting program differs from programs in many business schools because they believe that a rigorous, liberal arts education is the most effective foundation for a career in professional accounting. Students work very closely with the faculty, all of whom have extensive professional experience in large and small CPA firms and corporations to add to their academic backgrounds. Small classes, many with less than 20, mean that all students are active participants at every class meeting.
- TOEFL iBT
- Duolingo English Test
- The Common Application, including the personal essay and University of Redlands member questions

Redlands Accounting students go on to great careers. Over the last five years, within months of graduation, close to 90% of B.S. Accounting graduates begin professional work at public accounting firms that provide training rivaling the value of advanced degrees, all while you start earning a salary.
About half of students have signed contracts with firms before returning for their senior year; many sign a contract during senior year. Others find their start in investment firms, private companies, or government.
