Modified Schedules for Malibu and Calabasas Classes through Thanksgiving Holiday Period

Beginning Wednesday, November 14, through the resumption of regular operations after Thanksgiving, classes impacted by the closure of the Malibu and Calabasas campuses were administered remotely through a combination of online, email, and remote assignments. Students should have received further details from their professors by 5 PM on Tuesday, November 13. This remote administration of courses did not require students or faculty to remain in the Los Angeles area or be available during regularly scheduled class times.

**Note: Encino, Irvine, and West LA campuses remained open, as did the other international or regional campuses. Refer to emergency.pepperdine.edu for the latest campus information.
