University description (as per official university website)
We are a regionally accredited, private career college that has been preparing students for rewarding careers in Healthcare, Business, Legal and Technology for over 145 years.
Heald is regionally accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education. That's a quality certification that must be earned and that not every college gets. It makes us proud and makes your Heald education more valuable. It also allows us to have articulation agreements with other regionally accredited institutions that accept Heald credits toward bachelorís degree programs.*

Perhaps the most important thing that sets Heald apart is that we've been around for over 145 years. We're not new to career education. We started with one campus in San Francisco, back in 1863, and we've expanded to 12 campuses across the western United States: Concord, Fresno, Hayward, Modesto, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, Salinas, San Francisco, San Jose, Stockton, Honolulu and Portland. That's intelligent growth, one student at a time.
Don't let money worries keep you from going after the degree you've always wanted. At Heald, we're committed to making it easy for you (and your parents) to navigate the financial aid process. The fact is, there are a lot of financial aid options out there, and we're here to help you take advantage of them.

* Federal Pell Grants
* Federal Academic Competitiveness Grants (ACG)
