Accreditation

Northern California University is seeking the oldest stamp of approval there is for an educational institution accreditation. This means that all of our programs, operations, statements of accomplishment and financial standings must satisfy the highest levels of scrutiny, assessment and peer review. Accreditation takes time, but it provides assurance that NCalU faculty, curriculum, administration programs and services meet the highest standards of excellence.
