La Sierra University (La Sierra or LSU) is a Seventh-day Adventist co-educational university located in Riverside, California, United States, and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Adventist Accrediting Association. La Sierra offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level degrees.

Founded in 1922 as La Sierra Academy, it later became La Sierra College, a liberal arts college, and then was merged into Loma Linda University in 1967. In 1990, La Sierra separated from Loma Linda University to become an independent institution.

Since becoming independent in 1990 it has won multiple national and world titles in the Students in Free Enterprise competition. In the late 2000s and early 2010s, controversy arose involving the teaching of evolution in La Sierra's science curriculum. La Sierra has also been the subject of controversy due to its students' low CPA exam pass rates and high levels of student debt after graduation.
