The Division of Continuing Studies (DCS) is specifically designed for adult students (at least 22 years of age) returning to college. If you would like to complete your degree but feel you do not have enough time or money, we have the solutions that may make the difference.

La Sierra University's Division of Continuing Studies offers ACCESS, a flexible degree completion program in which you can move through the required courses as slowly or as quickly as your personal schedule allows, and you can modify your class schedule quarter to quarter. Each class typically meets one night a week, 6:30 p.m. - 9:50 p.m., for ten weeks. Classes only meet Monday through Thursday, leaving your weekends free to study or spend time with your family. 

I decided to attend La Sierra University because of the diversity of students, the integrity it provides to the education of students, and the overall commitment to make sure the student succeeds. I decided on a Social Work major because of the services it provides to people. I want to be able to make a difference in someone's life. I also want to be able to give them a sense of hope when they appear lost.
