California's Most Affordable Online Christian University

We are proud to be one of the most affordable Christian universities in the nation. And that’s not by accident. We are deliberate about keeping tuition costs as low as possible. How? With no athletic department, dorms, or buildings to maintain, we’re able to focus our resources where they matter most — providing a high-quality education delivered by experts in their fields.

M.A. in Leadership and Organizational Studies I wanted to get my master’s degree but I didn’t want to be in debt. I heard about LAPU and how affordable it is. It was important to me because I still need to provide for my family. L.A. Pacific gave me this opportunity. I’m able to not only provide for my family but also pay for school as I go; and I’ll graduate with no debt.

For over 20 years, tuition increases at U.S. universities have outpaced the growth in average household incomes. We think that’s wrong. Our goal is to make a college education a reality for anyone.
