Through its Regional Campuses, the University of La Verne provides educational opportunities
for mature adults with varied educational backgrounds. Applicants will be considered
for admission based on the following criteria:
- Number of college-level semester hours completed
- Cumulative GPA
- Work Experience
The Bachelor of Science in Public Administration degree program is designed for mature
working professionals over the age of 23 with or without college experience. These
programs utilize and value the experience students have obtained from the workplace.
Because of this expectation, applicants under the age of 23 are considered for admission
only if they possess substantial work experience and a cumulative GPA of 2.2 for any
transferable college or university course work. Students who have not already completed
the equivalent of Eng 110, College Writing A (Eng 101 at Allan Hancock College), must
complete this course within the first two terms of enrollment at ULV.

"I believe Hancock is the greatest community college out there for so many reasons. The counselors got me on track, and the instructors go out of their way to help. Because I am doing well in math and science classes for the first time in my life, I will be able to pursue a career as an environmental engineer. I will be able to find viable solutions to real world problems because of my time here."
