    California Coast University

    I am a high school science teacher and also have been an adjunct at a community college and a small university. I have two masters degrees. I am about a year from retirement and would like to earn an EdD . I would like to help high school students in determining what colleges they should go to and using dual credit, CLEP, DANTES, AP in order to save money and time toward degree completion . Does anyone know if California Coast University is interested in working toward regional accredidation. Thanks for your help.

    Not as far as I know. Don't hang your bets on a school gaining RA.

    That would be interesting. I am enjoying the Ed.D program and as an international student based in the UK the current US Dept of Education recognition and national accreditation of CCU constitutes acceptable government approval (as it should in the US, really). Rather than CCU getting RA, I am wonding whether this issue Regional and National accreditation as two separate entities will eventually become a thing of the past and they'll merge the whole system! Perhaps that can be one useful thing the Trump administration does?!

I am an International student in the CCU Ed D. program and the US Dept of Education recognition and national accreditation of CCU is certainly sufficient government recognition for me (as it should be in the US, really!). I am wondering whether this issue of Regional and National accreditation as two separate entities will become a thing of the past and the two systems will eventually just merge! Perhaps this will be one useful thing the Trump administration does!

    CCU is a good school, I received my BS in management from there. As far as the question about Regional and National accreditors merging and becoming one? I don't see that happening.

    Yes, just wishful thinking. I was thinking of the situation we used to have here in the UK with higher ed. divided into Universities and Polytechnics which were generally (originally) more for technical or professional degrees (although most polytechnics had humanities departments eventually, too). In the early 1990s all the Polys were granted independent University status and changed their name from X Polytechnic to X University. We still have top universities and less stellar ones but the 'class division' between 'universities and polytechnics' no longer exists.

    In UK Universities use their own but also NARIC UK to evaluated non UK degrees to UK degree compatibility.
    NARIC UK will not evaluate US NA degrees, they only consider US RA degrees as equal to UK degrees.

    This can be a problem for some.

    True, but no UK University has to abide by UK-NARIC's decision. They are free to make up their own minds as to what they accept - and for which program. Students can - and do - get NA degrees accepted, depending on which program, which university and a whole host of individual criteria. No guarantees, of course.

    My visit to California Coast University
    One of my visits was at a time when founder Thomas Neal was still in charge. I was a bit taken aback that his office was decorated in full Confederate regalia: flags, muskets, uniforms, and so on. He told me that that day was a big one for CCU , with two "celebrities" visiting: me in the morning, and state Superintendent of Public Instruction Wilson Riles in the afternoon. Neal clearly did not know that Riles was African=American. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall with the Jefferson Davis picture.

    But CCU got accredited anyway? And they are still approved to operate in California by this state?

    Hi, I have two questions. 1) How long does it take to complete the CCU Master in Psychology if completing it at full time pace? 2) Does anyone know if the MS (Psychology ) from CCU is accepted in the UK for BPS registration? Many thanks for your help people! :)

    I believe UK-NARIC would not recognize this degree, simply because the school is Nationally Accredited and UK-NARIC always requires a US degree to be Regionally Accredited. I doubt if a UK professional body would recognize a degree that UK-NARIC won't.

    UK universities are not bound by UK-NARIC's decisions. Some can (and do) admit applicants with US Nationally Accredited degrees to further study, if they see a good chance of success for the individual applicant. But employment or professional affiliation - that can be a different game entirely. From the BPS site: "...must hold an additional postgraduate qualification in psychology at least equivalent to a UK masters degree." If the degree is not recognized by UK-NARIC as equivalent (as it's NA not RA) then, I'm assuming it's not enough for BPS. Best bet - make sure by contacting BPS directly - maybe through the site.

    .
    That pretty much sums it up!
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."
