Due to updated guidance from LAPHD we are now offering limited campus visits. We appreciate your patience as we work to solidify plans for a safe campus experience. Learn more

The Office of Admission invites all prospective Seaver College students and their families to visit our picturesque campus in Malibu, California. Through these in-person experiences, you and your family will gain a better appreciation for the opportunities that Pepperdine University has to offer.


Group Size

How many people are in your tour group? Please read the instructions below that are applicable for the number of people that will visit our campus with you.

 Application Workshops and Student-Led Tours (1-9 guests)

The Office of Admission hosts daily campus visits, which include a 60-minute student-led campus tour and 30-minute long application workshop with a Pepperdine Admission Counselor. The application workshop reviews the timeline for applying, the application evaluation process, and financial assistance.

 On-Campus Admission Interview


Join us for an admission interview on our Malibu campus! The optional interview provides an opportunity for applicants to have a meaningful conversation with a Pepperdine admission representative. This conversation allows you to learn more about Pepperdine and the Admission Office to learn more about you. Although the interview is informational in nature, interviewers will also provide an evaluative report that will be included in the applicant's admission file and treated as an additional letter of recommendation.

You can register for an interview either before or after submitting your Common Application, but only students applying for Fall 2022 are eligible. Your chances of admission will not be negatively affected if we are unable to offer you an interview.

Please note: On-campus and regional interview registration will be available the week of August 23, 2021.
