William Jessup University is one of the fastest-growing universities in the country.
In a recent Chronicle of Higher Education study, the Christian college, which is located in Rocklin, placed seventh on a list that featured “Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) member schools, and all private, nonprofit and Christian schools in the country.” The study was conducted between 2005 and 2015.
The university, which arrived in Rocklin in 2004, saw its enrollment jump from 532 students in 2005 to 1,161 in 2015 – a 118 percent increase. William Jessup’s 2017-18 academic year began on Aug. 21 with enrollment hitting nearly 1,500.
The university offers 22 majors and more than 50 concentrations. Also offered is an accelerated working professionals degree program called the School of Professional Studies. Graduates of the university do well – according to a university survey, “within six months of graduating, 94 percent had obtained full or part-time employment, or were enrolled in graduate school.”
The school is WSCUC (WASC) and ABHE accredited and has two locations – Rocklin’s 130-acre main campus with a second campus in San Jose, where the university originated.
