Our History

Institutional History

CTU is a non-profit private institution that was established in May 1994.  In the Fall for the same year, CTU earned an approval as a degree-granting institution from the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education (BPPE) http://www.bppe.ca.gov,  a state agency which regulates all private postsecondary institutions in the State of California.

In 2010, CTU with its tradition of integrative approach to its program, saw the need to change its educational objective to include courses in business and education that aimed to carry the University as a 21st Century institution of learning. In August 2012, the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education approved and granted CTU’s Application for Change in Educational Objectives, and added higher education courses in business and education.

CTU leadership firmly believes in continuing improvement of its programs to provide education to the community, and to the society at large, with the objective of becoming a school for the 21st Century learning..
