Official message and status updates from Los Angeles Pacific College (LAPC):

• Due to concerns and uncertainty of the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), LAPC has transitioned to distance education effective March 18 until March 31, 2022. 


• Only domestic students and students with an existing F-1 status before March 9, 2020 can pursue a full course of study that is 100 percent online.


• Students admitted with a new or initial, F-1 status after March 9, 2020, cannot pursue a full course of study that is 100 percent online.

Per CDC guidance, students returning from international destinations may be required to complete a health screening process and/or self-isolation measures.

Students who are experiencing any symptoms of illness should avoid coming onto campus until they have fully recovered and until they receive a negative covid test. If you feel you have flu-like symptoms, please call your healthcare provider immediately.
