FAQs Regarding Spring Term 2020 and Covid-19

Will the Spring term still be open at Pacific College?

Yes. We are still planning to start an incoming cohort for our Spring term, beginning May 4th. As of now, the plan is to run the classes as normal, however, should we need to implement an alternative, Pacific College has a plan which will not interrupt yours! This plan includes offering courses online. While there is a portion of your program that is hands-on learning, there is also a component that is didactic (lecture-based). In the event we need to change course for the Spring term, we are prepared to offer these didactic classes online.

Is Pacific still accepting and enrolling applicants for the Spring term?


What if I am unable to submit my official transcripts?

We understand many students are facing significant challenges as a result of school closures. We will accept unofficial transcripts to move you forward in the process. You should still order official transcripts and have them in route to us but this will not hold you up.

How will my final interview be conducted?

Your final interview can be done via phone or Skype video and your Admissions Representative will convey these methods with you at the time you are ready to schedule this.
