Undergraduate Admissions

Palo Alto University (PAU) offers Bachelor degrees in two majors: Psychology and Social Action and in Business Pyschology*. PAU Bachelor degree programs are uniquely designed for students transferring from a California Community College or those who have completed approximately two years of college and now wish to major in Psychology or Business. Accredited by the WASC Senior Colleges and Universities Commission (WSCUC), PAU Bachelor Programs are offered in online, evening/online hybrid and day formats, adapting to the different educational needs of our students.

*Palo Alto University will not be enrolling any students into the Business Psychology program for the fall 2021 term.

The PAU Bachelor degree programs are highly structured, professional and efficient, allowing students to graduate in two years and begin their careers or graduate study as quickly and as inexpensively as possible.
