Dean Jackson's Message to SAHP Students

Monday, March 30, 2020

Dear Students,

I hope all of you are taking care of yourselves and following the precautions outlined by CDC of hygiene and social distancing.  It isn’t an overstatement that these are unprecedented times that challenge us.  In the time I have been dean our School and University have faced challenges and have overcome them with the grace and wisdom of God.

As we begin our Spring quarter online, we want to welcome you back and want to assure that your faculty have prepared for you and are looking forward to continuing your education.  Your faculty are also working on how to present the lab portions of your programs and I encourage you to keep in touch with them as they will be different across all of the programs in our School.  Our clinical coordinators continue to seek alternatives to many of your clinical rotations.  We will continue to keep you updated on any changes as they occur.  We are in this together and together we will prevail.  Stay healthy.


Craig R. Jackson, JD, MSW, FASAHP

Dear Students,

These are unprecedented times for all of us and we know that those of you who plan to graduate in June have concerns for your education and completion.  Our first priority is and has been your health and safety and I want you to know that both our School and University are meeting and planning the continuation of your education through online format that will help us maintain our observance of CDC guidelines and provide a healthy space.  Our plans for labs and clinical rotations for many of you are ongoing and you will hear from your programs the plan unique to your specific program requirements. 

I want to reassure you that your faculty are working to continue to provide for you the quality education you have come to expect from Loma Linda University even during these times.  We are communicating with our colleagues in other institutions who are making similar decisions so we can avail ourselves of the most up-to-date methods of instruction of health-science related content.  We will continue to keep you aware and updated of any changes in this ever evolving and fluid situation.  Stay strong.  God will be with us and provide His wisdom in all we are doing.

University Commencement

Commencements 2020

As a healthcare sciences institution, we place highest importance on the welfare and safety of our students, faculty and staff, and our community at-large.  Given the evolving public health situation associated with COVID-19, and following CDC guidelines and State mandates, the University has decided that in-person commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 22-24, and June 12-14, 2020, will not take place this year. 

Knowing how important these ceremonies are to our graduates and their families, we are committed to finding the best way possible to recognize the efforts and accomplishment of our graduates, and are currently exploring a number of options. 

We encourage you to stay up to date with the latest commencement plans by visiting LLU Commencement, for updates and plans as they become available.  Institutional updates and information is also available at  LLU Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates Page.

Veteran Student Profile

Ryan Ziegler

Physician Assistant Class of 2020

In 2012 I was devastated when I received notice from the Loma Linda University School of Allied Health Professions Physician Assistant (PA) program that I had not been accepted. I then decided I needed to do something to make myself stand out from the crowd for the next time I applied.
