What kinds of hands on learning does La Sierra University have to support marine Biology?
La Sierra University
La Sierra has access to two marine stations in the US (one in California and the other in Washington) where you can get first hand experience with marine life and take courses during summer sessions. As well, we value the opportunity professors provide in having students participate in undergraduate research, attend conferences and present at conferences, as well as publish their work.

What is the average amount of financial aid students receive at La Sierra University?
La Sierra University
That of course depends upon two important factors, GPA and FAFSA information. However, the average grant aid awarded in 2020-21 was $18,738. To that you would add student loans, which for freshmen are up to $5,500.

What is the NCLEX pass rate of La Sierra University nursing students?
La Sierra University
La Sierra does not have it's own Nursing program. We work with Loma Linda University and provide the Pre-Nursing component (generals and pre-requsites). So the question about the NCLEX pass rate would be for Loma Linda School of Nursing.
