SSU Students at the Pacific Beach Campus:

This is to notify you that the Pacific Beach campus will be closing at the end of this week on Thursday, February 23, 2017. Unfortunately due to a number or factors, including a recent change in accreditation regulations (see below) requiring all satellite locations (termed “Learning Sites”) to be within 5 miles of a main or branch campus, this change is being implemented at this time at the end of the academic term for the Pacific Beach campus.


Explanation of Final Change – Effective January 1, 2017
The Council finalized a definitive requirement for the distance from which a learning site may be geographically separated from its managing (main or branch) campus. This distance is a radius of five miles.”


While the Pacific Beach campus has been a conducive learning environment since spring of 2015, we must now offer two alternatives to our Intensive English Program students at this location.

  • Transfer to the Intensive English Program at the SSU Fashion Valley campus. Contact IEP Coordinator Marlyssa Ebel at 619-298-1829 or
  • Transfer to another SEVIS-approved school of your choice.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our students, but stand ready to assist you in a smooth transition to continue your language program studies.
