Off-site Cohorts

To further the convenience of our program offerings, Pacific Oaks College can also come to your place of work to provide your program in a “cohort model” format. For example, we can teach an entire group of teachers at a school district, or employees at an early childhood center—to enable those individuals to complete their bachelor’s or master’s degrees in a convenient and cohesive fashion. Within this model, students at offsite locations journey through their programs and courses as a unified group (known as a cohort) and emerge with an enduring, supportive, professional networks. 

Off-Site Cohort Locations

According to standards set forth by WASC, our regional accrediting body, off-site cohorts must fall within a 25-mile radius of a campus for 100% face to face instruction. Both our San Jose and Pasadena campuses offer off-site cohorts; please choose the area below for further details:

If you have completed a degree outside of the United States, please have an evaluation conducted to ensure that your degree is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree. Pacific Oaks College requires evaluations from a NACES approved evaluation agency and recommends:

A cohort with 17 or more enrolled students may receive the Cohort Tuition Rates. To maintain this tuition rate, students must remain at the original cohort location for the duration of their program. See sample chart below.
