Please read and acknowledge each statement below: *

Any offer of admission to Fresno Pacific University prior to the applicant’s completion of high school is provisional, subject to successful academic work during their remainder of high school and proof of graduation, except for candidates who are applying for college entrance without high school graduation. Any offer of admission to an applicant transferring from another college is provisional subject to successful completion of course work in progress at the time of application and proof of good standing from the previous college. Meeting admission requirements does not guarantee admission. Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to specific academic programs. Student's with a felony or misdemeanor conviction or adjudication, may not be eligible for clinical or internship placements, state licensure or other certifications required for successful program completion and/or employment. (i.e.: nursing clinicals and licensure, state education licensure, social work internships and licensure). All application materials become the property of Fresno Pacific University. Fresno Pacific University is committed to providing a learning and living environment that, consistent with its Christian beliefs, promotes safety, transparency, personal integrity, civility, mutual respect and freedom from invidious discrimination. Fresno Pacific is a Christian university governed by the Pacific District Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, and is controlled by a board of trustees, the majority of whose voting members are elected by delegates of the conference. Fresno Pacific adopts and follows the Confession of Faith of the U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. As such, Fresno Pacific is exempt under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 34 C.F.R. section 106.12, and from provisions of California Education Code 66270 to the extent that the application of Title IX and California Education Code 66270 are not consistent with our religious tenets. These exemptions may apply to, but are not limited to, requirements in the university’s community standards, employment policies, housing policies, admission and recruitment processes, benefits and services, financial assistance, and our academic programs, including student leadership, athletic and arts programs. Fresno Pacific University retains all rights afforded under federal law and the laws of the State of California. In compliance with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Fresno Pacific University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability or status as a veteran in the recruitment or admission of students or in any of its policies, practices or procedures.

Values and Behavioral Expectations
The Fresno Pacific Idea affirms the university as a learning community that seeks to encourage its members … “ in a collaborative search for knowledge and experience which lend towards a perceptive and creative relationship with God, humanity, and the natural world…” As an extension of the educational mission of the Mennonite Brethren Church, the university affirms the authority of the Bible over all matters of faith and life. While Fresno Pacific University is a distinctly Christian institution, students do not have to be Christian to be admitted. Fresno Pacific University invites all who are committed to upholding the principles of respect, integrity and doing good in all situations, to be members of its community.
