    California Southern new Regionally Accredited (as of 21 June) WASC

    Looks like Cal Southern is now fully RA, by WASC.

    They applied back in 2012:

    California Southern University Applies for Accreditation With the Western Association of Schools and Colleges

    Approved in Jun 2015:

    California Southern University | WASC Senior College and University Commission

    Now shows up on their website:

    Accredited Online Degrees | Accredited Online Degree - California Southern University

    This now means that there are RA online degrees from $250 to $400 a CR here.

    Online RA DBA: Approx. $23K

    Yes, we heard that news a little while ago. Good news for all concerned.

    Thanks Kiz,

    I tried to sift through the posts to find some updated info before I posted....

    What's the overall consensus?

    SCUPS. But I guess they're better now.

    Glad to see more DEAC schools get RA. Looks good.

    Well, if they'd ever apologized for the time (long ago) when they copied a page from my book, changed it to make it seem as if I was saying more positive things about them, re-typeset it, and sent it out as part of their marketing package, then I would have a happier feeling.

    Water over the bridge. I'm letting go. Congratulations to them. And good for WASC, too, which had a long history of showing little interest in schools with distance or online programs.

    I am a current student there and am loving the education . Faculty and staff are awesome. I attended a large state university for my bachelor's and master's and did 4 years of a clinical social work PhD at a highly respected program in Chicago and I find CalSouthern's education to be quite good. The one thing that frustrates me is they let in students that have no business in a doctoral program. Some of these students can't even write a coherent paragraph. I emailed my instructor about this and he said it tends to even itself out. I can't imagine them getting passed the dissertation phase.
