California Coast University, also referred to as CCU, has been a pioneer in distance education since its inception in 1973. The school is completely online and all courses are offered over the Internet. Necessary materials can also be mailed to students. Enrollment is available at any time, making this one of the most flexible colleges due to the fact that there are no set semesters. Working professionals who need to obtain an additional degree or learn new skills will find this to be an institution willing to work with their already tight schedules.
