"Decent Indeed. Great affordable school with solid education. Commitment makes you smarter. Helped me with my career. Needs improvements on there format, instructor-student interaction, media interaction and instruction, testing centers instead of proctors (at least for finals) and looking to further their accreditation. Not for everyone. Be aware that some schools don't accept their credit (especially GEs, Psychology and health courses) Be prepared to get doors shut since the degree is only nationally accredited and not regionally. I work for corporate so I did good. I would not go the Education, Psychology, or Health degree route. Business and Criminal Justice works. Ill ask employers first."

"Due to my schedule, California Coast University was the only way I was able to complete my degree. I am currently working in the field of mental health and couldn't be happier with the education I received and being able to do it at my own pace was paramount to my being able to succeed. Thanks to all of the people at the institution I am now where I needed to be all along."

"Excellent program-very helpful to my career. Very rigorous program-I have attended both regional and now CCU. I find this program to be superior in that the study guides and syllabus for each course extremely helpful. I have friends in programs in traditional MBA programs they use the exact same textbooks that CCU requires. I will end up with my degree and not be in debt-they will end up with their degree and be paying off their school debt for many, many years to come. CCU was the best decision I could have made-and my degree is from an accredited school."

"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 am indebted for the excellent guidance and advise of both my Field Advisor and the late-Dr. H., Dean of the School of Behavioral Sciences during the years it took to complete my doctorate program in psychologyat CCU. The additional course work they recommended, and additional courses attended at the University of Washington, was an important complement to the balance needed to lay a solid foundation related to the field of psychology, beyond the Master's degree earned at the University of New Mexico. By attending CCU to earn my doctorate degree I was able to help raise my children and be with them during their formative years, while working full time at a research institute, without causing undue financial hardship to my family."

"I completed my Bachelors at a Ashworth College and my Masters at California Coast University. California Coast University was a great choice to further my degree. I majored in Organizational Leadership and the course work was intense. DETC coursework is just as good as any regional school, and I have attended both. It helped me further in my career and I want to thank California Coast University!!!"

"I completed my MBA in Health Care Management in 14 months with no break. CCU exceeded my expectations in both academic rigor and excellence. The support staff from admissions, faculty, and recognition by the president were all first rate and truly motivated me to stay the course. Having more than one option to receive course materials is a big plus and offers flexibility for those traveling while in school. I started a second Masters this year and look forward to completing it next year along with my spouse doing the same. One of the best educational experiences I've ever had bar none."

"The MBA program is very good designed. It is not easy at all. You have to study seriously to complete the test and get good grade. This is very good course for mid career people. I'm in my mid career time and I also have a baby to take care of. This course give me chance to have a MBA degree. I do learn a lot from this course. I definitely recommend this school to my friend and I did that already."
