Congratulations on being accepted to Pepperdine University! We have high hopes and expectations for you, and we're confident you'll rise to the challenge.

Because of Pepperdine's commitment to Christ and our unique calling as an educational institution, we want you to be aware of some of the high standards that help us create a very special community where you will make lifetime friendships and memories.

I recently sat down with a group of students and asked them which policies they think are important for new students to know before coming to Pepperdine. Below, you should access the information they selected for your review.

Our community standards are designed to help us create a nurturing, caring, and safe environment where everyone can learn and grow as we prepare for lives of purpose, service and leadership.

I look forward to your arrival and will be praying for you and your family as you prepare for this exciting new phase in your life.
