With undergraduate degree programs in Criminal Justice, Business Administration, Marketing, Management, Health Care Administration, Psychology and graduate degree programs in Business Administration, Human Resources, Management, Education and Psychology, the University provides students with the necessary tools, support and guidance to help them complete their degree programs, as rapidly as time and ability.

California Coast University's programs are oriented toward the mid-career adult and working professional. Conversely, classroom universities are attracting the 18 to 21-year olds whose life goals and ambitions have yet to be established.
California Coast University is not attempting to compete with such schools as University of Southern California, University of California Irvine, or Stanford. California Coast University students know who they are, know exactly what they want to do and are interested in a challenging and rewarding educational experience. For this reason, they are often more motivated than students at classroom universities. In addition, they gain significant advantages from their professional experience. Not only are they able to draw from the knowledge they have developed throughout their career thus far, but also they may apply earned credit for what they have already learned toward their degree program.
California Coast University holds accreditation through the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). The DETC is an educational association located in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1926, it is the standard setting agency for distance education institutions. The Accrediting Commission of the DETC is listed by the United States Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency.
