Accreditation and State Regulatory Authorizations
California State University Channel Islands (CI) is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, #100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001.
For more information on the WASC accreditation please visit this webpage, http://www.csuci.edu/accreditation/index.htm .
In addition to CI’s WASC accreditation, CI’s Martin V. Smith School of Business & Economics BS Business Online degree is currently a candidate for the Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Program (ACBSP).
State and federal regulations have recently changed regarding online classes. Educational institutions are now required to be authorized to offer online courses/degrees to students who reside in states other than their own. This authorization comes from each state. As a result, non-California residents may only enroll in CI’s online courses when their state has authorized our university as a provider.
While the CSU system has applied to all 50 states for this authorization, we are currently only accepting enrollments/applications from students who reside in the states and U.S. territories listed below.
