Open University

The Open University Program at University of the Pacific allows members of the community to register for regular University courses without having to apply for admission to Pacific or to submit transcripts.

Open University students attend the first class meeting and confirm space availability with the professor.

However, Open University students may not register for a class until the class meets for the third time.

They participate in all class assignments, projects, and exams along with matriculating students and must abide by all regulations, policies and procedures governing the University’s regular courses.

For more information, contact Pacific's Office of the Registrar at 209.946.2135 or
