California Southern University, also known as CalSouthern, was founded as a distance learning school in California in 1978. However it was NOT accredited by any agency recognized in the USA for college accreditation until Jan 2010 when the Distance Education and Training Council accredited it to offer distance degrees.

For a discussion of what various types of college accreditation can mean to consumers see:

We have no rating or ranking data on this school so we can't contribute more to your questions.
