History[edit]

Prior to moving to California, the college was known as California College of Health Sciences (CCHS) and before that as California College for Respiratory Therapy (CCRT).

CCRT, earlier known as Scottsdale Education Center, originated in December 1971 and was located in Phoenix, Arizona (AZ). As a vocational-technical school, the college offered multiple allied health and technical programs. A Respiratory Therapy Technician Program was initiated by the college in January 1974 and was continued till 1976, in Phoenix. Scottsdale Education Center became California College for Respiratory Therapy (CCRT) after moving to California, where it operated in San Diego from 1977 to 1980. The college then offered only a Respiratory Therapy Technician program. A distance education model of the Respiratory Therapy Program was launched by CCRT in 1978. In 1983 CCRT renamed itself as California College of Health Sciences (CCHS).

In June 1996, the college was acquired by National Education Company (NEC)/International Correspondence Schools (ICS). Harcourt General acquired NEC, ICS's parent corporation and CCHS in June 1997. ICS (now Education Direct) and CCHS were then acquired by Thomson Corporation in 2001. In May 2003, the college was purchased by California College Inc. The institution then changed its name to California College San Diego (CCSD). The college became the newest member of the family of schools that includes Stevens-Henager College and CollegeAmerica. The academic offerings of the college were expanded to include degree programs in other educational fields like business, technology and medical specialties.
