National University, a private, four-year institution, has announced that it is opening a new branch this year at 27405 Puerta Real in Mission Viejo.
The new facility, to be called the "Mission Viejo Learning Center," will house six classrooms. Classes will start Feb. 3, and initially, business administration courses leading to associate, bachelor's and master's degrees will be offered, university officials said. The new facility can accommodate up to 300 students.
The university said it has an agreement with Saddleback College to enable students to transfer credits to its four-year program.
