Pacific College was established in 1993 for the purpose of providing high-quality education responsive to the training needs of medical and business studies aspirants, as well as to the employment demands in professional allied health and business occupations.
Pacific College was first accredited in April 1998 by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). In 1999, Pacific College was first accredited by the Board of Vocational Nurses and Psychiatric Technicians.
In October 1998, Pacific College was authorized to offer Title IV funding for those students who qualify. Pacific College participates in the following Title IV Programs: Federal Pell Grants, Federal Direct Loans, and Federal Family Education Loans (subsidized, unsubsidized, and PLUS).
In 2007, Pacific College was authorized by the State of California, ACCSC and the United States Department of Education to offer the Associate of Science Degree programs.
Due to continuous increasing demand for healthcare education, a satellite campus was opened in 2009 in the City of Commerce in Los Angeles County to accommodate students from the Los Angeles area.
Amendments to our curriculum as approved by the United States Department of Education as well as the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education allow Pacific College to award an Associate of Science in Vocational Nursing.
