"Faculty and Advisors support from first course to graduation was excellent. Someone always answered my phone calls. Books were available at the University. I studied hard and was evaluated sincerely, honestly, and fairly. My field research was well worth it and my work was published in the Journal of Business Ethics - USA. My degree made a huge difference in my life, especially when I decided to teach after retiring as an engineer. My company also covered the cost, fees, books, and travel to present my work to a Panel of Professionals at the University."

"I received 3 degrees at three different online schools. And CCU's program has been the most flexible and gave me the ability to complete my studies. CCU's financial payments, course/program offering and schedule was perfect for incorporation into my schedule. When I started at CCU I had evenings free to study, but a year into the program I changed jobs and my schedule. Without being able to complete courses when I had time, there was no way I would have been able to finish the degree. I couldn't attend traditional brick and mortar schools during their schedule. The idea of a "self-paced" program may initially make one think it's easier than traditional schools; but that thought will get you in trouble. People forget, when you are responsible for your education, that means "you are responsible". The school is there to help when you need it, but they treat you like an adult. You're responsible for completing your exams, essays and final tests, you are responsible for on-time payments, finding a proctor and completing your classes. If you are considering online education anywhere, you have probably heard, "You get what you put into it", and nothing more could be true of CCU and most other online schools. The tests and essays are challenging, as well as, being very well developed."

"The MBA program in Health Care Management at CCU is definitely for the self-motivated adult learner who knows what they want to achieve in an education. As an independent study program you are challenged to broaden research topics to succeed in the curriculum. My entire experience from application through matriculation and graduation solidified my decision to attend CCU. The school president provides continuous support and encouragement as you complete each course with superior results. A perfect fit for the full-time working adult with family and community responsibilities with very flexible open enrollment and completion options, unless you are sponsored by your employer or military/VA tuition payment programs. Overall, the educational experience at CCU is even or above par with my previous traditional experiences. The economic value is by far CCU's greatest incentive to attend for a fraction of the cost of a state public or private-for-profit institution."

"The Staff at California Coast was always helpful in my studies and time at California Coast. I have 4 children that I sent through RA Universities that graduated. Their degree plans or work was very similar in scope and length to California Coast University Degrees. I'm very proud to say I earned a degree from this University."

"I enrolled in the Bachelor' in Business Administration Program. I was able to transfer every credit that I had received during my two years at a brick and mortar university.I love the ability to test out of classes as well. It has been great to work at my own pace. I am always able to get an immediate answer when I call the university with any questions. While the school is not regionally accredited, it does hold national accredidiaton. In this day and age, just the fact that the school holds national accredidation seems to be enough for the employers I have spoken with. The best plus to the program is that the tuition was half tom a quarter that of comparable schools.The only thing to watch out for: If you take the universities plan of $100/month, remember you will not get your degree until you have paid the university in full! Overall, an awesome choice for working adults!"

"Is CCU a good choice? I have been doing a lot of research on Regionally vs Nationally accredited schools. Our Government recognizes both Regional and National accreditation. I am considering using CCU for my BS I have an Associates from a Regionally accredited school. If I move forward I know there are Regionally accredited colleges that will accept my BS from CCU and allow me to pursue my masters with regional accreditation. University of New England and Ashford University are just two.In the grand scheme regional accreditation is more widely recognized but it's not a deal breaker. Most normal jobs should respect your diploma and if you pursue a masters from a regionally accredited school there should be no issue. If the degree gets you in the door it all comes down to you and what you can offer. I look at this way I plan on knocking my BS out in a year and moving on to my Masters. I will be done in less than 3 years with everything with regional accreditation for my Masters where as if I went regionally all the way through 4-5 years and ton more money.Oh and to the guy crying about wanting to sue CCU because he did not know it was not Regionally accredited get a life. First off it does not cost money to sue if you have a case and a lawyer sees value in your accusation which clearly you have none. It did not take a lot of research to see what this school offers and for anyone crying about it after the fact shame on you for not digging deeper into it and I would imagine you probably have issues with other aspects of your life as well."
