We are an institution of Christian Higher Education that was established not only to serve the community of Southern California and Orange County and Los Angeles but also students from all over the world. Francis University was launched to provide the highest standards of education with Christian values and inspiration.
Students are able to take a limited number of hybrid-online courses to augment the high quality on-campus, face-to-face instruction they receive from their professors. Many students find that this helps them to fit all of their classes into their busy schedules.
Clubs &
We have a lively and burgeoning on-campus community, with many opportunities for students to get involved, such as student government, chapel services, and various student organizations, all of which add value to your time at Francis.
