Apollos University


Apollos University was established with the mission to provide higher education to qualified students that might not be able to attend or afford a traditional university. The University was originally founded in August 2004 as a non-profit university. Later the non-profit corporation was closed and the for-profit corporation was established in May 2005. The new University was named the Apollos University of California with a “doing business as” (DBA) Apollos University.

Today, Apollos is located in Montana under the name of Apollos University, Inc. Apollos has remained true to its original mission of providing higher education to qualified students via online technologies and mediums.

Today, the university has students throughout the United States and Canada, as well as in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Apollos serves working professionals from around the globe who would not be able to leave their jobs to enroll in a traditional, brick-and-mortar university.

Apollos University received its approval from the State of California’s Bureau for Private Postsecondary & Vocational Education (BPPVE) in July 2005 and then enrolled its first student in September 2005. Later, the decision was made to move the university to Great Falls, Montana, and received approval from the Montana Board of Regents on 8 July 2016 to open the campus in Great Falls, Montana. The office in Huntington Beach, CA was closed on 30 Sep 2016 and the office in Montana became operational on 1 Oct 2016.

The DEAC accreditation remained in place and the VA approval was updated for Montana effective 1 Oct 2016. Apollos was approved as a member of SARA (State Authorization and Reciprocity Agreements) on 7 Dec 2016. Today, Apollos is approved to teach students in all 50 US states and the District of Columbia.

Over the past few years, the University has successfully grown and proven itself to be a student-centered university. Its first graduation was held in July 2007 and the graduates have all, without exception, made significant improvements in their professional lives based on the knowledge and encouragement they received from their Apollos University degree programs. In its continued strive for quality; the Board of Directors authorized the Executive Board to pursue 3rd party accreditation. Apollos applied for accreditation in 2010 and received accreditation status in January 2012. The university is now an accredited member of the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). DEAC is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency.
