We know some of you are concerned about the institution's authority to offer educational programs to members of the select organizations. Taking that into consideration, CUP provides certain legal references and affiliations that might assure you that we operate within our legal provisions to offer educational programs with qualified instructors and required facilities and policies.

California State

California University of Professionals (CUP) meets the qualifications for exemption from regulation under the California Education Code (CEC) section 94874 (b)(1).

California Legislature CEC 94874 (b)(1) states that:-
" An institution only offering educational programs to members of a bona fide trade, business, professional, or fraternal organization that is separate and distinct from the institution and that sponsors the educational programs. An institution that sponsors an educational program directly or through an affiliated division or corporate entity of the institution and that requires student membership for purposes of those educational programs does not qualify under this exemption.

CUP is exempt-verified by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE), California. View
