Congratulations on your admission to the University of La Verne for the Fall 2020 semester!
We understand the Coronavirus has caused disruption at a pivotal point in your academic careers. You no doubt have many questions. We have provided some responses to the most frequently asked
questions below. We also encourage you to connect with your admission counselor if you have any additional concerns you would like to discuss.
Is the University of La Verne closed?
Most university employees are working from home as recommended by the CDC and the University of La Verne moved all classes online beginning March 16. However, you are able to connect with key departments including admission, financial aid, student accounts, and academic advising via email phone or through a virtual appointment online.
Can I visit campus?
Currently, only essential staff are working on campus. Most offices on campus are working remotely. Campus tours and on-campus admitted student events such as Leo Fridays and Spotlight Weekend have unfortunately been cancelled. While campus is not physically closed, we encourage prospective students to follow CDC safety guidelines. However, you can connect with the university through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or YouTube.
What do I do next?
We encourage students to follow the next steps for admitted students at laverne.edu/admitted/checklist. Additionally, we have vital info on your next steps including how to save your spot on your admission portal.
How will I register for classes?
Log in to your application portal to complete the checklist items for online Summer Opportunity for Advising and Registration (SOAR). Your checklist will walk you through how to sign up for an appointment with an academic advisor and register for your classes.
My grades for the spring semester are now Pass/No Pass on my transcript. Will this affect my admission? Can I still get transfer credit?
For freshmen admits, this will not affect your admission decision or scholarship.
Transfer admits will still have courses taken as P/N considered for major, general education or elective credit as if the course were taken for a letter grade. Credit will be reflected on a student’s transfer evaluation after a student has been admitted and the registrar has evaluated the college/university transcript.
Will I still be able to earn credit for AP, IB, or A-level exams?
Yes, the University of La Verne acknowledges you have worked hard to prepare for these exams. The University of La Verne will continue to award credit consistent with previous years for exams taken in 2020.
Will classes be in-person this fall?
If it is safe to do so, and based on guidelines by the CDC the university will resume in-person classes for the Fall 2020 semester.
I planned on living in the dorms next year. Will I still be able to?
Yes, the university plans to allow students to live on campus this fall. Be sure to fill out your housing application after you have submitted your tuition deposit to ensure you have a spot reserved on campus.
I cannot afford to pay the tuition deposit.
In some circumstances, the university may be able to waive or delay the tuition deposit. Please contact your admission counselor for more details. You can find out who your admission counselor is on the admitted student website.
My school is closed and I am not able to get final transcripts.
We understand there have been significant disruptions with many school districts and private schools closing and moving online. We are extending the deadline for final transcripts to late into the Fall semester.
What if I still have questions?
We are here to help! Please get in touch with your admission counselor via email or phone. Not sure who your counselor is? Check out our admitted student page; we have listed the contact details for each admission counselor and which students they work with.
