Soka University is a private, non-profit, four-year liberal arts college and graduate school located on 103-acres in south Orange County, California in the City of Aliso Viejo. SUA is just three miles from the beach (if you are a bird – nine miles driving) and located in the heart of Southern California’s abundance of cultural, educational, sporting and adventure opportunities.
SUA offers an 8:1 student/faculty ratio (average class size 12) and study abroad is included in tuition so that every undergraduate spends a semester living and learning another culture. Proudly founded upon the Buddhist principles of peace, human rights and the sanctity of life, SUA offers a non-sectarian curriculum that is open to top students of all nationalities and beliefs. About 60% of our students come from the US and 40% have come from more than 40 other countries.
SUA offers generous financial aid to both US and International students, with full tuition scholarships available to eligible admitted students whose earned family income is $60,000 or less (room and board fees still apply.) Additional scholarship opportunities are available for higher income levels.
The mission of Soka University is to “foster a steady stream of global citizens committed to living a contributive life.”

Soka University is founded upon the Buddhist principles of peace, human rights and the sanctity of life. The curriculum is non-sectarian. Educational objectives are fostered at the university through the commitment to rigorous academic endeavors, free and open dialogue, and an appreciation for human diversity. Education is an integrating process in which students gain an awareness of the interdependence of themselves, others and the environment. Wisdom, courage and compassion - values treasured by the university -- do not exist in isolation. They emerge in individuals as they learn the importance of service to others, to the natural world around them, and to the great cause of peace and freedom.
