Irvine Valley College has signed a three-year agreement with the University of Redlands School of Business that will provide tuition discounts and transfer opportunities to local students, among other perks.

“One of the major benefits … is the tuition discount of 10 percent for students and 15 percent for IVC employees for undergraduate or graduate courses offered in the School of Business program at the University of Redlands,” said Irvine Valley College President Glenn Roquemore.

Other benefits include accelerated and sequenced courses. And if a cohort of 15 students requests an on-site degree program from the Redlands business school, Irvine Valley College will provide classroom space and computer lab facilities.
 
The partnership will expose local students to the University of Redlands, which would participate in on-campus transfer fairs and maintain a presence in the transfer-counseling department. Currently, the University of Redlands doesn’t land among Irvine Valley College’s top 10 transfer institutions. However, Redlands Dean of Counseling Elizabeth Cipres said she expects transfer rates will increase as a result of the partnership.
