Apply for Admission

Now accepting Summer applications for our Palo Alto and Costa Mesa campus.

We believe a first-rate education should do more than provide an education and experiences that set you up for success in a career. It should include opportunities for self-improvement and allow you to grow as a whole person.

Speak with our Admissions team to learn more about our programs and decide which is best suited for you!

Staying Student-Centered

Through COVID-19

Being a student-centered university means putting our students at the top of our priority list and making sure we’re doing everything possible to continue to provide the best educational experience during this pandemic.


We recently sent out a survey to make sure we’re doing just that, and the response has been positive! We invite you to hear what our students have to say about Sofia’s transition from face-to-face to virtual course instruction. 

Why Sofia?

Embrace the Sofia Difference

For over 40 years, our educational approach has been rooted in transforming the transpersonal – the belief that true transformation requires a deeper understanding of the body, the mind, and the spirit.

At Sofia, you will do more than earn an academically accredited degree taught by distinguished and passionate faculty. You will embrace the fullness of your human capacity to help solve the greatest challenges facing society today.

Embrace the Journey

Our accessibility to a diverse mix of cultural, educational, and recreational resources in California gives Sofia students a little bit of everything. 

Whether your journey brings you to Sofia to study computer science, business or psychology, you will have the opportunity to embrace all that Northern and Southern California have to offer. 

Embrace a Diverse Community

At Sofia, you will embrace a learning community that challenges, inspires and stimulates you. Surround yourself with like-minded, passionate individuals taking on our undergraduate, masters, certificate and graduate programs, and grow together.
