Once I earn my Bachelor's Degree from California Coast University would I be accepted for graduate school at a traditional college or university?

A recent California Coast University (CCU) Alumni survey indicated that one of the primary reasons that graduates first came to CCU (flexible scheduling, open enrollment, off-campus, etc) is the very reason they didn't complete their education at traditional colleges or universities. This does not mean that you may not consider continuing your graduate studies at a more traditional institution. The University's Admissions Department suggests that you check with the institution you are considering applying to.

The description below briefly explains today's current climate in higher education with regard to transferability of academic degrees.

"Accreditation does not provide automatic acceptance by an institution of credit earned at another institution, nor does it give assurance of acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer. For these reasons, besides ascertaining the accredited status of a school or program, students should take additional measures to determine, prior to enrollment, whether or not their educational goals will be met through attendance at a particular institution. These measures should include inquiries to institutions to which transfer might be desired or to prospective employers and, if possible, personal inspection of the institution at which enrollment is contemplated."
