Palo Alto University, in the Silicon Valley, offers two-year bachelor degree completion programs in psychology and business, designed for students transferring from a community college, or that have completed two years of college.

For community college students unable to gain admission to the UC or Cal State systems, Palo Alto University offers a career path in business, management, and human services.

Palo Alto University (PAU), founded in 1975, a private, fully accredited, not-for-profit educational institution in Silicon Valley, is accepting applications until September 22, 2014 for its two-year bachelor degree completion programs in psychology and business.

Two majors are offered: Psychology and Social Action, and Business Psychology, which are specifically designed for students that have completed two years of college, or are transferring from a California community college.

“For community college students who were unable to gain admission to the University of California or California State University systems because of overcrowding or other issues, as well as students seeking a private university education at a competitive price, PAU offers a path to careers in business, management and human services,” says Paul J. Marcille, Ph.D., PAU’s director of undergraduate programs. “Our programs meet the educational, professional, and lifestyle needs of students with classes offered during the day, evenings, and online. They are highly structured, allowing students to graduate in two years.”

Classes are held on PAU campuses located in Palo Alto and Los Altos as well as at Foothill College, College of San Mateo, and DeAnza College, and are taught by professors and Silicon Valley business leaders. Students that enroll and attend this fall 2014 receive a $1,000 scholarship (in celebration of Palo Alto University’s 40th anniversary, formerly known as the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology).

To apply for PAU’s bachelor or graduate programs, complete the online application, which requires the submittal of basic information. A transcript from colleges or universities attended will need to be sent as part of the application process. Financial aid and scholarships are available for those that are eligible.
