California InterContinental University, also known as CalUniversity, provides distance learning in business administration and management. Since 1996, it has had roots with EdNet, an education network of IT education, training, and certification centers worldwide, Qsofttraining.net Training Centers, and iUniversity, and has been known by its current name since 2003. In 2005, CalUniversity received California State Approval to grant undergraduate and graduate degrees and has been fully operational since then. Throughout its history, the school’s mission can be summed up by “education for everyone” and to that end, it has offered more than $1.5 million worth of scholarship grants.
CalUniversity has a strong focus in the fields of business administration, healthcare management, and engineering technology. Degrees are offered at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level. All communication between students and faculty is via a virtual environment. The school’s online LearnCenter is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to connect to lectures, course work, and other materials. Students and faculty may also elect to interact in real-time.
CalUniversity is accredited by the national accrediting agency, Distance Education and Training Council. It has held this distinction since January 2009.
All applicants to CalUniversity must submit an application form and sealed official transcripts. Admission is based on the applicant’s cumulative grade point average (CGPA), though additional evidence of academic proficiency may be requested. Additional requirements vary by program level. Undergraduate applicants must submit a copy of their high school diploma or GED certificate and official transcripts from postsecondary course work, if applicable (an applicant’s college academic record must show a minimum grade point average of 2.0, or a C).
Graduate applicants must submit a copy of their CV or resume and an official transcript showing the completion of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, which must show a minimum CGPA of 2.0. Applicants who completed non-business-related coursework must also meet CalUniversity’s business foundational prerequisites by taking a required course in basic accounting. Applicants for the professional doctorate program must also submit a resume, as well as evidence of a minimum of seven years of full-time work, preferably at a managerial level, related to the business administration field, and official transcripts showing the completion of a master’s degree from an accredited college or university, which must show a minimum GPA of 3.0, or B. For applicants whose master’s degree was in a non-business-related field, their application would be evaluated to determine if they have a reasonable foundation to successfully complete the program.
