In the summer of 1982, the University of La Verne began offering classes to residents of the High Desert Communities of Victorville, Apple Valley, Hesperia, Barstow, and surrounding areas. In spring of 1996, the University continued its commitment to the community by offering classes at the newly established High Desert Campus, a full service regional campus that would provide a local presence.

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.

ITT Students

The University of La Verne is committed to helping students in the High Desert region succeed. Former ITT Technical Institute students can contact Associate Director of Admissions Donald Parker at (760) 955-6477 to learn more about the university’s degree programs and transfer policies.



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.
