ISP classes are offered in Whittier (Los Angeles) and Hayward (San Francisco Bay Area).

The Integrated Science Program (ISP) is an accelerated college-level science curriculum enabling you to finish your science classes and prerequisites in an intensive, weekend-based, immersion-learning format.

The ISP Program is offered by Southern California University of Health Sciences in both Los Angeles metropolitan area and San Francisco Bay Area. Southern California University of Health Sciences is a 4-year university fully accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission.

Students immerse themselves for one month focusing on one accelerated science class subject at a time, similar to an intensive summer program but instead ISP is offered all year round.

The ISP curriculum is an academically rigorous college science program. Our instructors are highly skilled and ISP student graduates are well prepared for their new careers in nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, medicine and other healthcare professions.

See what ISP students have to say:

ISP intensive science classes are specially designed for:

ISP students enroll because:

ISP offers 15 different weekend college classes

Many ISP graduates are already pursuing medical careers in:

* If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.
