Northern California

The main Jessup campus is centrally located in Northern California just outside of Sacramento, the State Capitol. Just hours away, the California coast has much to offer. Cities like San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and San Jose give ample opportunities for career choices, mission outreach, world class shopping, and lots of fun.

Sierra Nevada Mountains

Lake Tahoe and the foothills give Jessup students the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The summer months are perfect to go hiking, biking, fishing, or boating. Winter provides the opportunity for snow activities such as snowboarding, skiing, and sledding, or sipping hot chocolate at the numerous ski resorts.


William Jessup University offers undergraduate degrees that prepare students for a career or further study in graduate school. Our Quality Liberal Arts curriculum, founded on the integration of faith and academia, encourages students to think critically and problem solve for lifelong learning. Our classes are taught by distinguished faculty that continuously encourage and support our students in establishing and attaining their academic and career goals. A Christian education at Jessup inspires our students to become all that God envisions for them so they may one day become successful leaders in their homes, communities and churches.
