Pre-Application Advising

Advising begins on a prospective student’s first visit to the regional campus or satellite location. Our admissions representatives explain all aspects of our degree programs and empower students to decide whether a La Verne program is right for them. Prospective undergraduates are encouraged to request a preliminary assessment of their prior course work before applying for admission. This evaluation provides an estimate of how many more courses and how much more time will be required to graduate.

After Applying for Admission

Your admission representatives will help you with the admission process, partner with you to plan your courses, and answer any questions as you progress toward graduation.


  • The Academic Merit Scholarship is for undergraduate students with a strong scholastic record from previously attended colleges and universities. Click here to learn more. Speak with the campus admission representative for details.
  • The New Teacher Initiative Scholarship (for undergrads) is available to those who qualify. Click here to learn more. Speak with the campus admission representative for details.



Class flexibility allows students to work full time as they complete their degree, while small classes create the atmosphere needed to learn from professors and peers.

Personal attention from La Verne staff members means you will never feel like a number; there is always someone with whom you can speak.
