Los Angeles International University is licensed and approved by the Bureau of Private Post-secondary Education (BPPE) and is compliant with state standards set forth in the California Education Code to operate as a private postsecondary degree granting institution.  This is a legally valid degree, valid as any degree from any approved University.

Although we are licensed and approved to operate as a private degree granting institution by the BPPE, we are not accredited yet.  While approval is public and mandatory, accreditation is private and voluntary.  However, accreditation is very important to us, as it ensures that the institution meets the highest standards of quality.

LAIU has already started to prepare for accreditation.  We constantly review our standards and procedures so we can submit an excellent application and hope to expedite the long process as much as it is in our control.

LAIU is pleased to provide the following information to our students and the general public:
