Even though California Coast University is not regionally accredited, we still recommend them because of the number of courses and degrees offered. They offer 11 master’s degree programs in organizational leadership, business administration, education, and science. They also offer three doctorate programs in educational administration, educational psychology, and organizational leadership. Many businesses, the U.S. federal government, and the U.S. military have used California Coast University degrees as a basis for promotions, assignments, and position qualification standards.

California Coast University also offers correspondence courses for prisoners at the undergraduate level.

Comments: Good school. Good program. Materials state that degrees and credits earned through CCU are recognized for promotions, assignments, and position qualification standards within the US military and federal government. The school sends a long list of private companies that have reimbursed all or a portion of a student’s tuition during or after their degree was completed at CCU. These would be employees of the listed companies. This shows that CCU’s degrees are well respected in the workplace.
