For California licensing purposes:
Approved schools are those institutions that are approved by the Bureau for Private Post-Secondary Education. For more information, see and BPPE Update.

If you are enrolled in or considering an online degree program that is based in another state, please be aware that your degree will be evaluated in accordance with California in-state degree requirements. Please contact your school to ensure that the program integrates the California-specific content required of California residents. This coursework must be integrated into the program and cannot be remediated post-degree. Therefore, it is imperative that the California-specific requirements are included in the degree program.
