Description of Institution: 

Union University of California (UUC) is an online theological university intent on reaching the world’s church leaders to provide them with the opportunity to study practical, holistic theological and church leadership training.  We offer certificate and degree programs at the most affordable tuition rate among accredited institutions.
UUC welcomes students from all denominations and Christian faith traditions, and recruits faculty to represent the wide variety of denominations and faith traditions within the Christian Church.  UUC seeks to ground our theological training within the context, insights, and theological developments of the church in the regions where our students live and minister.
Union University of California was established in the State of California in 1986 under the name of the Vietnamese Theological College (VTC) as a non- profit, religious corporation.  As the name reflected, the first students were Vietnamese in the United States. In 1992 the Board of Directors decided to change the name of VTC to Union College of California (UCC) and later in 2009, changed to Union University of California. The name change reflected their desire to embrace the growing need for Christian education beyond the Vietnamese community in the United States and to extend educational opportunities to students worldwide. Today, many UUC graduates serve in leadership positions at various ministries around the world.
UUC is fully accredited by Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC: https://www.deac.org/), a national accrediting body approved by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA: https://www.chea.org/) of the U.S. Department of Education.  UUC is fully approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE: http://www.bppe.ca.gov/) of the State of California to grant academic degrees (Approval to operate means compliance with state standards as set forth in the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009 and Division 7.5 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations.) UUC is also an affiliate member of the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE: https://www.abhe.org/).
