Programs

A major goal of Central Michigan University is to provide academ- ic programs for students whose career or personal circumstances limit their access to traditional forms of higher education. In keep- ing with this goal, the mission of ProfEd is to deliver high quality, fiscally sound, responsive-to-market programs to adult learners. CMU’s off-campus program, established in 1971, is committed to the university’s recognition of education as a lifelong process that extends beyond traditional academic learning. ProfEd aims to provide opportunities for adult students to achieve their individual educational goals for personal growth and career development.

ProfEd will implement university policies and make operational goals as follows:

  • Each course or degree program offered will meet the same rigorous academic standards as comparable courses and degrees offered on campus.

  • Undergraduate and graduate courses and degree programs will be structured and offered at times and places most suit- able to the clientele served.

  • Only those courses and/or degree programs will be offered which meet a documented need and are academically sound.

  • Student selection and course design and delivery will en- hance ProfEd as the premier extended degree program in the United States.

  • Courses and degree programs will be offered at a competitive and fiscally responsible cost to the clientele.

  • The provision of administrative and academic services to students will reflect a level of excellence concomitant with overall program goals.

  • The environment will be continually monitored to identify changes which require new approaches to meet clients’ needs.

  • All courses and degree programs will be monitored closely to ensure the high quality of the product provided to the cli- ent groups.

  • New approaches/processes will be developed and evaluated to provide educational opportunities to our target popula- tions.

  • Adopted by the Academic Council 6-27-87

Authorization

Central Michigan University complies with authorization require- ments in the states/provinces in which it offers classes. Some states require that specific statements regarding an institution’s status within the state be made available to students. The following statements are included here to fulfill the requirements of these states/provinces.

California: Central Michigan University is authorized by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education to deliver degree programs at: MCB and Camp Pendleton, to of- fer the Master of Science in Administration with concentrations in General Administration, Human Resources Administration, and Information Resource Management; and the Master of Arts degree in Education with concentrations in Adult Education, and Instructional; and, Carlsbad, to offer the Master of Science in Ad- ministration with concentrations in General Administration, Human Resources Administration, and Information Resource Manage- ment and Leadership; and the Master of Arts degree in Education with concentrations in Adult Education and Instructional.

The following statement is required by the Council for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education: The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) was established by the California Legislature to protect any California resident from losing money if the student prepaid tuition and suffered a financial loss as a result of the school closing, failing to live up to its enrollment agreement, or refusing to pay a court judgment.

To be eligible for STRF, the student must be a “California resi- dent” and reside in California at the time the enrollment agreement is signed. Students who are temporarily residing in California for the sole purpose of pursuing an education, specifically those who hold student visas, are not considered a “California resident.”

To qualify for STRF reimbursement, the student must file a STRF application within one year of receiving notice from the Council that the school is closed. If the student does not receive notice from the Council, the student has four years from the date of closure to file a STRF application. If the judgment is obtained, the student must file a STRF application within two years of the final judgment.

It is important that students keep copies of the enrollment agree- ment, financial aid papers, receipts or any other information that documents the monies paid to the school. Questions regarding the STRF may be directed to the Council for Private Postsecond- ary and Vocational Education, 1027-10th Street, Fourth Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814-3517, 916-445-3427.
