Independence University (IU), formerly known as California College for Health Sciences, is an online non-profit[1][2][notes 1] university headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.[3] Independence University is the online branch of Stevens–Henager College, and operates four schools: the School of Healthcare, the School of Business, the School of Technology, and the School of Graphic Arts. Independence University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).[4]


In 1978, the school began to offer education at a distance and operated as California College for Health Sciences. In 2005, it was renamed Independence University. In 2010, Independence University merged with its affiliated institution, Stevens-Henager College, becoming a branch of Stevens-Henager's main campus in Ogden/West Haven, Utah.[citation needed]
