Independent California Colleges and Universities

 

The independent school advantage

 

Choosing an independent college or university in California provides access to a rich diversity of students, residential campus life, and alumni/ae networks that can provide lifelong benefits after you graduate.

Explore the breadth of offerings at AICCU’s 78 member colleges and universities, and don’t let the sticker price of college deter you from the school of your choice. California’s private, nonprofit colleges and universities offer scholarships and grants from their own institutional resources, access to federal and secondary grant and loan programs, work-study opportunities, a variety of tuition payment plans, and other ways to help students pay for college. For more information, see Affording College. Also, check out the links below and the information links on other student pages.
