There are over 75 nonprofit, independent colleges and universities in the state. Every nonprofit, independent college and university has a unique character. Unlike the University of California or the California State University systems, each California nonprofit, independent college and university has its own governing board and admission requirements. This independence allows for a diverse set of college opportunities in California.
