Welcome to the Palm Desert Campus
We’re located in the center of the Coachella Valley. After 38 years, PDC continues to provide adult learners with the opportunity to complete undergraduate and graduate degrees/credentials in this desert region. Each academic term, more than 200 students enroll while working full-time. The majority of our students are the first in their families to attend a university. They seek a quality learning experience that is affordable and offers the flexibility of an 8-week course schedule. The campus provides student support services that are offered face-to-face and virtually with professional and dedicated staff. The students have consistently rated faculty at the highest level of teaching effectiveness. PDC is a wonderful small campus, where students succeed.
