A Purpose-Driven Education

You come to college with a wealth of knowledge and experience you gained in the military. We deeply value what that brings to the classroom. That’s why we strive to collaborate with you in your academic endeavors. We will come alongside you to help you pursue your current and future goals.

College should be fulfilling, applicable, and meaningful. At PLNU, you’ll receive a purpose-driven education, one that can help you build something bigger than yourself.
