About Our College

La Sierra University (La Sierra[4] or LSU) is a private, Seventh-day Adventist university in Riverside, California. Founded in 1922[5] as La Sierra Academy, it later became La Sierra College, a liberal arts college, and then was merged into Loma Linda University (LLU) in 1967 and became the La Sierra Campus of LLU. In 1990, the La Sierra Campus separated from Loma Linda University to become La Sierra University, an independent institution. It is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), the Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA), and several discipline-based accrediting bodies.[6]
