Pre-Application Advising

Advising begins on a prospective student’s first visit to the regional campus or satellite location. Our advisors 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. Speak with the campus admission representative for details.
  • The New Teacher Initiative Scholarship (for undergrads) is available to those who qualify. 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.

BS Child Development


How Do I Get Started?

Students of the program are required to complete only 44 upper-division (i.e., junior- and senior-level) units through La Verne. They earn these units by completing the required upper-division courses in their majors through La Verne because upper-division units cannot be awarded by a community college. Students meet all other requirements by completing lower-division classes through Moorpark College.

Students may start working on their majors through La Verne after they have completed at least 28 units through Moorpark College. Just like participants at any four-year university, individuals who enter the program can continue completing lower-division requirements while also completing upper-division requirements in their majors. The lower-division requirements will continue to be satisfied by enrolling in Moorpark College classes; the upper-division requirements will be satisfied by enrolling in La Verne classes.

When Do The Classes Meet?

University of La Verne classes meet one night per week and operate on a 10-week accelerated term.  Students take one or two classes per term depending on the program of study designed for their cohort.  Some classes are offered partially online, reducing the number of hours in the classroom each week.  There are four 10-week terms per year.

How Are The Classes Scheduled?

Classes are scheduled for cohorts of students who begin their program together, take their classes together, and then finish together. Cohorts begin when a sufficient number of qualified students complete the Application for Undergraduate Admission and are admitted to the university.
