Spring Preview Day is March 15!

Want to find out why more students are including Jessup in their college search? Tuition hasn’t increased since 2020 and continues to hold steady, new programs are launching, Jessup Athletics is entering the NCAA and starting a men’s volleyball team and the community students find on campus is second to none.

Prospective students are encouraged to attend the University’s spring Preview Day on Friday, March 15; RSVP’s are still being accepted. Jessup has already received record response numbers for the event, which goes from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Preview Day gives students and parents the opportunity to connect early; attending classes and interacting with faculty, students and other parents in a small, intimate setting. Information about majors and financial aid will be available throughout the day.

“Preview Day is a unique way for students and their families to understand how seriously we take our commitment to educating the whole student: academically, spiritually and socially,” explained Jessup’s Associate Vice President of Enrollment, Angela Switzer.

“Many families and students might overlook the possibility of attending a private university, but the reality is that the financial commitments may not be as great as prospective students think,” Switzer said.

Jessup University offers a variety of scholarships and financial assistance. In the current academic year, the University awarded just over $14.5 million in Jessup Fund scholarships and other donor-designated awards.

“Many people may be surprised to find out that attending a private university could be less expensive than attending a UC institution,” Switzer said.

The Preview Day event features hands-on opportunities ranging from campus tours, attending sample classes, chapel and a university fair with information on specific majors and programs of study. Students and parents have the chance to interact during faculty, student and parent panels, as well as gather information about admission and financial aid. Prospective students also get to spend time doing fun activities (like painting) with current students to learn more about day-to-day life on campus.

Jessup University’s student/faculty ratio in its traditional undergraduate program is 14 to 1, enabling students to be engaged and accountable in numerous ways. Jessup students don’t have the challenge public university students have when it comes to assuring they get the classes they need to complete requirements. When students graduate within four years, fewer dollars are spent on tuition.“Our students don’t have to worry about getting the courses they need, which translates to completing their educational goals on time and overall lowered costs,” Switzer added.
