International Programs Admissions

Pepperdine offers full academic year and semester programs as well as 4 - 8 week summer programs, including summer internships. Students complete an online application that can be accessed through their WaveNet account. Some programs may require students to complete an interview or audition, or to submit additional materials such as a resume.

Students are encouraged to apply by the priority deadline, which is September 27, 2021. Following the priority deadline, applications will be accepted for programs with space available. Decisions will be given on a rolling basis.

We encourage all students to consult with their families, academic advisors, and financial aid advisors prior to applying. International Programs staff are also happy to answer questions and provide advising - Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm, call 310-506-4230 or email
