School Overview

La Sierra University is a four-year private Seventh-day Adventist university that was founded in1922 in the large city of Riverside, California. After changing name and ownership for many years, La Sierra separated itself to become an independent institution in 1990. The school was named La Sierra based on the large Mexican land grant, Rancho La Sierra, that the school lies on today.  

The University has five different schools, all of which operate on a quarter academic calendar, including: College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, School of Religion, Division of Continuing Studies, and School of Education which offer certificates, undergraduate degrees, graduate degrees, and doctoral level degrees. Many students continue their medical education at Loma Linda University, which is nearby and has many connections with La Sierra University. Teacher certification, distance learning, study abroad, and weekend/evening classes are available to students as well as remedial tutoring, academic/career counseling, employment services, and placement services.
