Visiting Jessup


The WJU campus is an impressive blend of modern architecture and state-of-the-art technology. Our 126-acre campus in Rocklin, Ca. is located just 20 miles northeast of Sacramento near the heart of California’s Gold Country. Nearby are historic places like Old Town Sacramento and Old Town Auburn. Beautiful Folsom Lake, the fantastic Sacramento River and the majestic American River provide warm weather fun and refreshment. Even Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley and downtown San Francisco are less than 2 hours away.

Each university is an individual, much like you. In order to get to know us fully, you must come meet us in person. The time is always right to visit, and most students take visiting seriously beginning in their junior year.

The Jessup Visit


The Jessup Visit allows you to fully experience William Jessup University in it’s entirety on an individual basis. You will tour the campus, attend a class of your choice, experience Chapel, have lunch, and be able to meet with an admission counselor to explore WJU! Overnight stays in the resident halls are also available if you choose.
