Lorma Colleges is a private educational institution in the City of San Fernando, La Union. It was founded in 1970 by Dr. Rufino L. Macagba, Jr., who wanted to address the need for a nursing school to complement the then Lorma Hospital. The school’s name was taken from the first syllable of the founder’s middle and last name—Lorenzana and Macagba. The college has another campus in San Juan, La Union where basic education programs are offered.
The institution has eight college units offering courses in Health Sciences, Business, Teacher Education, Psychology, and Computer Studies and Engineering.
