Coronavirus Community Announcements
The University of La Verne is planning to phase in appropriate face-to-face and on-campus operations in fall 2020 across all campus locations, while keeping the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff as the top priority.
The University of La Verne has received $2.8 million to distribute directly to students from the federally legislated Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Students may now apply for these grants.
To help students remain on track with their education through the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of La Verne is proud to announce that it will award additional scholarships to all students who enroll in classes for the summer term. We will also teach all summer classes online to ensure a safe and healthy learning and working environment for our students, faculty, and staff.
We launched the Student Emergency Fund several weeks ago to provide limited emergency financial assistance to currently-enrolled students who are unable to pay for immediate, essential expenses due to the novel coronavirus. Undergraduate, graduate, and adult learners at the University of La Verne may now apply for grants from the fund online at univ.lv/sef.
To protect the well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and their families, the University of La Verne will postpone 2020 Spring commencement ceremonies and related events.
This week, we will be holding another live State of the University address on Thursday, April 9 at 12:00 p.m. to provide another opportunity for faculty and staff to participate in the chat and submit their feedback.
Thank you for your hard work to help our students negotiate the first week of their online classes! We now need to look ahead to prepare for the next several weeks, which will bring unanticipated as well as predictable challenges.

Thank you again for your response to the novel coronavirus pandemic and the challenges it has posed as we move fully online for classes, mentoring, and student support. Last week, faculty made great strides toward a virtual education for more than 7,000 students. Starting Monday, the students will show up.
The University of La Verne has received and will continue to receive reports from community members who may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus. We have established an online reporting form to help community members report exposure, and we are following guidelines from public health officials in responding to the novel coronavirus.
In light of the changes being made to our campus operations in response to novel coronavirus, the University of La Verne campus store will be offering additional services/extensions which will hopefully be helpful to you as you conclude the winter term and prepare for spring term.
Effective immediately, only staff who have been designated by the university as emergency personnel will be permitted to on any University of La Verne campus. All buildings will be locked, and all non-emergency employees are required to work remotely.
As challenges from the novel coronavirus mount both locally and nationally, we have made the strategic decisions to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe while continuing to deliver our University of La Verne education. The precautions we have taken, while sometimes difficult, will help to save lives.
The University of La Verne’s Emergency Catastrophic Donation Leave will provide employees an opportunity to support their peers who are facing leave related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
