Based in Tempe, Arizona, Bryan University offers programs in the fields of healthcare, exercise science, and legal. The for-profit university has additional campuses in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Toronto, and Tempe.

History[edit]

Bryan College was established in 1940 by Dr. Mildred T. Bryan. Dr. Bryan welcomed her first three students into her living room, which served as the initial classroom for the institution, originally named Bryan Stenotype School.

In 2005, under the parent company Alta Education, LLC, Bryan extended its reach by opening a campus in Sacramento, CA. With this new campus, Bryan College introduced additional degree programs.

Near the end of 2011, Bryan College gained University status through the Department of Education, allowing it to offer bachelor's and master's degree programs.

Accreditation[edit]

Bryan University is licensed by the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education, and as of 1/1/2018 is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) to award diplomas, academic associate degrees, occupational associate degrees, bachelor's degrees, post-graduation certificates, and master's degrees.[1]

On December 12, 2016, the Department of Education ceased to recognize the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).[2] Bryan University has 18 months from the date of this decision to find a new accrediting agency to maintain eligibility to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs. Bryan University is currently seeking accreditation with the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC)[3] and is in-process with its application.
