Accreditation | Marymount California University Accreditation – Marymount California University


Founding and Accreditation

In 1968, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM) established the Marymount California University institution of higher education. In 1975, the RSHM transferred responsibility for the University to a lay board of trustees. Members of the RSHM provide a legacy to the University, through which their charism and education standard inspire the University’s mission. Marymount California University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  The Marymount California University has the same recognition as any other American university degree.

Thank you for visiting Marymount California University. In just the past few years, our institution has expanded its range of four-year and graduate programs, added two dynamic campus locations, attained university status and announced an exciting new name. What hasn’t changed, however, are the core values we’ve held from the beginning. As a Catholic university, we are as committed to serving others as we are to student success. We welcome learners of all backgrounds, experiences and ages, and we expect our students to create positive change in the world.
