Loma Linda University is a private, Christian, coeducational university located in Southern, California. Founded in 1905, Loma Linda is a Seventh-day Adventist educational health-sciences institution with the main goal of providing ways “to further the healing and teaching ministry of Jesus Christ to make man whole by educating Christian health professionals, expanding knowledge through research, and providing comprehensive health care.”
The university is divided into eight academic schools of Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, Religion, and Science & Technology through which students can pursue over a hundred programs leading to certificates of completion, associate in science degrees, doctor of philosophy and professional doctoral degrees.
Currently, there are around 3,972 students enrolled at Loma Linda ably guided in their pursuit of higher education by 1,397 fulltime faculty members. Cost of tuition at the university varies according to the course of study chosen. Regardless of the choice of program, financial aid is extended in the form of loans, grants and scholarships for qualified students.
To insure that anyone who wants to enroll in a program is able to do so, the university also maintains a distance learning program for students who cannot attend the regular day classes but who want to complete their degrees online via Internet.
On-campus housing is available. In fact, it is expected that students live on campus unless they are married, of legal age, enrolled in a graduate program or living with their parents. Students who are interested to live on campus but who do not meet the requirements can petition the vice president for student services.
