School Overview

The University of Antelope Valley offers higher education that enables students to achieve their academic, career, and personal goals, thereby allowing them to become valuable assets to their communities. In the winter of 1997, Los Angeles City Firefighter/Paramedic Marco Johnson began instructing community CPR and First Aid courses. This service quickly developed into the CPR and First Aid Company. Following demands of the community to teach other classes the name was changed to the Antelope Valley Medical College. 

In June 2009, the institution became the University of Antelope Valley (UAV) after being approved to award associate’s, bachelor’s, and master degrees. Programs are focused on professional subjects such as fitness, healthcare, and business, as well as paramedic and medical assistant studies, among others. Several degrees at all levels are offered entirely online.
