Distance Learning for Inmates: California Pacific University

Image courtesy cpu.eduCPU's programs are structured around courses designed to build a body of knowledge, one course built upon the other, much the way a staircase works one step at a time to get you from the first floor of a building to the second floor of a building, and ultimately to the top floor. The work required of each student is challenging but rewarding, allowing students to ‘sink their chops’ into the material presented. Faculty/student interaction insures a lively and stimulating environment in which to deepen and broaden the student’s understanding.

Specific Objectives

The specific objectives of the University are the education of business personnel, managers, and leaders who are:

  • Aware of an increasingly complex and changing technical business environment where quantitative skills are more important than ever.
  • Able to communicate new technology to others, and in general, manage change.

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.

California Pacific University is a private, distance education provider approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. The use of the terms “approved” “approval” “approval to operate” or any variant on such wording means that CPU has met minimum requirements only under California law and should not be taken as an endorsement of this institution, or its programs, by the State of California, or the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.

Further Information

CPU is not accredited, and its programs are not intended for licensure in the state of California, or elsewhere. A degree program that is unaccredited or a degree from an unaccredited institution is not recognized for some employment positions, including, but not limited to, positions with the state of California. Students of CPU will not be eligible to sit for applicable licensure exams in California or any other state. Most professional organizations, societies, states, and licensing jurisdictions have specific requirements for licensure, membership or certification. If licensing or credentialing is an objective, students are advised to first check the standards of their particular states, school districts, professional associations, and agencies for specific license requirements. Further, CPU does not guarantee employment as a result of a degree or degrees earned at this institution.
