COVID had a huge impact on IAU’s international student enrollment. The IAU Orange County Satellite Campus, located in the City of Garden Grove, was closed and stopped offering classes in March 2020. When IAU closed the IAUOC Satellite Campus, many students who live in Orange County had to commute to the IAU Los Angeles Main Campus to attend classes.
IAU is excited to announce that the relocated Orange County Satellite Campus will be opening in the City of Irvine for its inaugural class in Jan 2023. Irvine is known for its beautiful parks, friendly people, low crime, and great schools. For 16 years in a row, it’s been ranked as the safest U.S. city with a population of over 250,000, based on FBI data.
Irvine has nearby shopping and restaurants at the Irvine Spectrum Center, South Coast Plaza, and Fashion Island. If you are a nature lover, Irvine is home to Orange County Great Park, Orange County Great Park, Jeffrey Open Space Trail, and Quail Hill Trailhead.
