Merry Christmas!

The Fall 2015 semester has come to a close and the student body has departed from campus. The semester ended in some strong ways and we are planning to start 2016 in the same fashion. We are especially excited about the fact that...


Homecoming is a time for alumni of William Jessup University/San Jose Christian College/San Jose Bible College to reconnect with their alma mater and fellow classmates. Community has always been one of our cornerstones and we look forward to continuing in this spirit during the event packed weekend! Here is a schedule snapshot for you:


New Dorm Tour
Alumni Dinner & Award Receptions

The Next Preview Day is coming up soon, and you can invest in the next generation embarking on the journey of higher education. As alumni we know the blessing of Christ-centered higher education. You also know how powerful the community is at Jessup. So please pass along an invitation to family, colleagues, fellow church members, etc., who are looking into a college education and tell them about the community of William Jessup University as a viable and beneficial option. Below is contact and RSVP information for families and prospective students who are interested!

An Opportunity for Alumni


At Jessup it is important to offer opportunities for growth after college. Career and Life Planning offers two formal personality and interest assessments for alumni. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) are available to take online and can be interpreted by our Career Counselor in the Office of Career and Life Planning through face-to-face or online appointments. Costs vary per assessment. Please contact Bethany Okusako, Career Counselor at bokusako@jessup.edu or 916-577-8050 with any questions.
