California Miramar University

About :

California Miramar University is currently accredited directly by the United States Department of Education. In December of 2016, California Miramar University signed a Provisional Program Participation Agreement with the United States Department of Education. CMU was granted up to 18 months of “recognized accreditation” provided it makes continuous progress toward accreditation with an agency recognized by the Department of Education. California Miramar University has met all the timelines with the Department and expects additional accreditation with a recognized agency within the allotted 18-month timeline.


The California Post-Secondary Education Commission and California Miramar University list CMU's date of establishment as 2005.

According to California Miramar University's website, CMU purchased the assets of Pacific Western University – California, including its State of California approval status, in late 2005. As part of the asset sale, an institutions transition plan was implemented that called for PWU (California) to relocate to San Diego and teach out all active students over 18 months

In early 2007 the conditions of the asset transition were complete and the California State Approval was officially transferred to CMU. At that time Pacific Western University (California) ceased operations. Later that year California Miramar University filed for accreditation. As part of the accreditation process the accrediting agency ruled that CMU and PWU California were separate schools that operated under separate academic standards. The accreditation agencies stipulated that graduates of Pacific Western University - California would not be eligible to receive CMU diplomas or transcripts and that the records of the two schools should be held separate.


University is a small, private university, we know our students by name and support them every step of the way. CMU's Miramar Campus is located twenty minutes from San Diego's world-famous venues including historic downtown Gaslamp District, world-renowned San Diego Zoo, the beaches of La Jolla Shores, and the San Diego Convention Center.
