Educational Partnerships

California Coast University is committed to the success of its students and graduates. After completing educational programs at CCU, many of our graduates wish to continue their education in areas beyond the programs offered at this University. To help them do so, CCU has formed educational partnerships with a number of accredited colleges and universities.

What is an educational partnership?

An educational partnership is an agreement between two educational institutions to accept the applicable coursework or degrees completed at one school to meet the educational requirements at the partner school. Each of these partner schools are recognized leaders in their respective fields - offering a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates in a wide range of majors and fields of study. As a part of the educational partnerships, some of these schools may even offer other benefits including tuition discounts, fee waivers, acceptance of transfer credit and a fast track to admission.

We encourage you to explore the many opportunities offered by our educational partners.
