Proud to be a Nonprofit University

In today’s higher education landscape students have a lot of choices. Our nonprofit (not-for-profit) status means there is a big difference between Brandman University and many of the institutions that are focused on non-traditional students today. For example, the largest online university in the U.S. is owned by a publicly traded, for-profit corporation which has a fiduciary responsibility to earn money for its stakeholders. As a nonprofit institution, Brandman is focused on serving students with quality academic programs and a robust support infrastructure so that our students complete their degree programs and graduate. Our nonprofit status also means that we embrace our responsibility to provide affordable access to higher education, which ultimately allows graduates to successfully move up in their careers and benefits the community in return.

Some private, nonprofit schools can also give students the confidence of knowing that they belong to a long-standing history of academic excellence. Brandman University for example was born when Chapman University, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in California with nearly 150 years of heritage, opened its doors to serving the specific needs of military personnel and their families. Today, as part of the Chapman University System, Brandman helps its 12,000 students achieve their goals by offering classes online and at over 25 campuses throughout California and Washington. As part of this extensive network and rich past, Brandman students also benefit from an impressive alumni system that gives them the opportunities for career mentoring, networking and more. And finally, our success is measured by the success of our graduates which is why we are so proud of our consistently high graduation and low default rates.
