California Pacific University is a state approved, but not regionally accredited, distance learning school located in Escondido (San Diego), California. It was founded in 1976 to provide alternative educational programs for adults wishing to obtain bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in the areas of business administration and management.

California Pacific University was the first collegiate institution to be approved under the qualitative standards mandated by the State of California Educational Reform Act of 1977. Moreover, it was the first institution approved by the State of California to offer academic degree programs by distance study without residency requirements. The University's Master of Arts (MA) in Management and Human Behavior is California's oldest California State Approved distance learning degree program. Students are enrolled in programs designed for the achievement of personal, professional, and career goals.

California Pacific University was approved by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education until the bureau ceased operation on July 1, 2007. California Pacific University has entered into a voluntary compliance agreement with the Department of Consumer Affairs, while the legislature and state administration consider more permanent arrangements. California Pacific is not, however, accredited by any higher education accreditation organization recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. California Pacific University appears on the current California Postsecondary Education Commission list of state-approved institutions[1].

The use of unaccredited degree titles is legally restricted or illegal in some jurisdictions. [2] Jurisdictions that have restricted or made illegal the use of credentials from unaccredited schools include Oregon [3][4], Michigan, Maine[5], North Dakota[4]New Jersey[4], Washington[3][6], Nevada[3], Illinois[3], Indiana[3], and Texas.[7]. Many other states are also considering restrictions on unaccredited degree use in order to help prevent fraud. [8]
