On this page, you'll find information about academic life at Loma Linda University during COVID-19. Classes continue to be held either online, in-person with safety precautions, or both.

For more details about these changes, please contact your school's administration.

Winter Quarter

Following San Bernardino County guidance, all face-to-face didactic classes will continue to be held online. Classes and coursework will remain online until the county incidence of COVID-19 decreases to a safer level.

Hands-on clinical training and skill development continue in-person for groups of 15 or fewer students and faculty. Clinical rotations also continue for individuals with full personal protective equipment (PPE).

We're working hard to continue your quality education. When in-person classes resume, you'll be notified by your school or program.
