California Pacific University is Approved by The Bureau For Private Postsecondary Education to grant academic degrees under the provisions of California State law. Approval indicates that the University has been visited and reviewed according to specific standards, and that the programs are consistent in quality with curricula offered by appropriate, established institutions.
The University was the first California institution to be Approved under the qualitative standards mandated by the Educational Reform Act of 1977. It was the first institution approved by the State of California to offer degree programs without residency requirements. Thus, the University is the oldest State Approved Distance Learning degree granting school in California, and one of the nation’s oldest.
Please note: the use of the terms “approved” “approval” “approval to operate” or any such variation, indicates only that an institution has met minimum requirements under California law, and should not be interpreted as an endorsement of an institution, or its programs, on the part of either the State of California, or the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.
