Notice of Non-Discrimination

In accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Point Loma Nazarene University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, or national origin.  Furthermore, as required by the Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, Point Loma Nazarene University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs, activities, or employment policies.  Point Loma Nazarene University also provides equal opportunity for qualified persons with disabilities in compliance with the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Although we do seek to recruit students of the Christian faith and to create an institutional environment conducive to their growth in Christ, we do not require that students be confessing Christians.  We welcome and value as students persons of every background and faith.  As a Christian community, we expect that all of our students will respect the nature of our community, learn about our traditions and participate in our community practices. PLNU affirms that a Christian liberal arts education includes an understanding of and appreciation of the differences in faith, living, and practice.
