What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
They do care about their students and follow up them after classes so as to help them grow academically strong
Belyse
Professors are great.
sophomore
The courses are difficult, but if you really put you mind to it and do not procrastinate you should feel challenged but not terribly overwhelmed. There is also an Honor's program for those that are eligible. This is a great way to become closely connected with a smaller group of people.
Elizabeth
Very strong academic focus
Kelian from Colton, CA
La Sierra isn't impossibly hard. Like any other accredited institution there are some classes that become know as gpa-boosters and those which wreck havoc on academic transcripts. However, with great study skills and networking with other students in the classes it's possible to get a good grade.
Jarrel from Prospect, TN
Great.
Vontavia from Compton, CA
Academic Rigor at La Sierra University on a scale of one through ten is definitely a ten! All the students at La Sierra are pushed to perform at the best of their academic abilities.
Hannah from Eastvale, CA
This school cares a lot about their students and their students success so they base their rules on What will make the students happy. They are strict, simply because they do not want anyone to intervene on others' success. Yet they are not overwhelming on their rules. Just be respectful and courteous and you will be fine.
