Vandenberg AFB

The University of La Verne understands the needs of the military student. For more than 45 years, we have been serving our military members stationed at Vandenberg AFB and the surrounding community. We offer accelerated degree programs in a flexible, military-friendly learning environment. La Verne appreciates the distinct needs and challenges inherent with military service and is committed to serve our military students and help them achieve their educational goals. As a La Verne military student, you enjoy a highly competitive military tuition rate, as a graduate, you enjoy the respect and recognition of a nationally-ranked, world-class university.

Getting Started


  • Tuition for undergraduate classes is $250 per semester hour. Federal financial aid is available.
  • Tuition for graduate classes is $375 per semester hour. Federal financial aid is available.

Effective Fall 2017, the military rate applies only to active duty personnel admitted to Naval Base Ventura County (formerly Point Mugu) and Vandenberg. Students not in an active status with the military who are admitted to one of our military sites, will be assessed according to the rates listed above. Current students not in active status with the military who were admitted prior to Fall 2017, are eligible to receive the military rate through the Summer 2019 term.

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.


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.
