Accreditation & Approvals

Dear Prospective and Current Students:

I’m pleased to share that we have taken proactive steps for SP Jain School of Advanced Technology Inc., owned by the SP Jain School of Global Management, to acquire California Miramar University in the coming months. SP Jain offers high-quality business and IT degree programs around the world.

This transaction will not change the name of our institution or CMU’s academic programs, student services, day-to-day operations, or financial stability. This will not impact your financial aid. Your instructors will not change, and the school will maintain all of its existing approvals and accreditation. You will remain a student of CMU, and when you complete your program, you will become a proud CMU graduate.

If you have additional questions about this planned change, please contact Jeanie Foster at [email protected]. We are excited about this planned change and look forward to the future of CMU.
