The College of Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) is one of the eight academic colleges at California State University, Long Beach. CCPE is a self-support, interdisciplinary college that works closely with its university, business, community, and international partners to serve California's workforce. The College provides expanded access to CSULB's exceptional academic programs and educational resources, and offers a diverse range of degrees, professional development certificates, and international education programs. Through the Center for International Education, CCPE creates opportunities for its students to study abroad; and brings students from around the globe to CSULB.

The College of Continuing and Professional Education is different from CSULB's other academic colleges because it is interdisciplinary, and not limited to one specific subject area, such as arts or science. CCPE's unique position as both an academic college and a community outreach entity means that partnerships and collaborations - with the university, businesses, organizations, and community leadership - are an integral part of its operation. CCPE fosters collaborative academic initiatives with both credit and professional development (non-credit) programs.

CCPE programs do not receive state funding and are supported entirely by student fees.

The CCPE Mission Statement

With a clear and focused mission as a leader in international and continuing education, CCPE helps individuals and organizations reach their highest potential. CCPE is committed to becoming the premier choice for international and continuing higher education both locally and globally.

The College of Continuing Professional Education programs are major vehicles by which the university fulfills its responsibility to meet the lifelong personal and professional development learning needs of citizens, industries, and institutions within the region and beyond. Through its degree and certificate programs, credit and non-credit classes, seminars and special programs, online delivered instruction, and customized on-site training, CCPE brings the resources of CSULB to individuals and groups at times, locations, and in formats convenient to their diverse lifestyle.

At CCPE, we value providing access and opportunity, innovation, excellence, integrity, customer service, collaboration, and diversity.

Through its work, CCPE advances the mission of Extended Education in the CSU system outlined by its Commission on the Extended University:

  • Meeting California's economic and workforce development needs
  • Increasing access to educational opportunities by serving broader constituencies
  • Developing alternative instructional delivery systems
  • Creatively developing new programs
