University of Jamestown
Grow as a person. Grow as a professional.
Then go change the world.
There is a difference here.
It starts with our approach to education. We believe that our purpose as a University is to help our students grow, within the four walls of a classroom and beyond. All so they can develop into a well-rounded professional and person.
Average class size
Small classes help students connect with their professor and peers. Less students = more time for discussion and individualized support!
Number of students who pay full tuition
You read that right. Every full-time, undergraduate student receives some type of financial aid.
Majors, Degrees, and Programs
With more than 40 areas of study, led by experienced faculty (never grad students!), you’ll learn to think, communicate and lead through an educational approach that combines liberal arts with professional preparation.All Programs

“The culture and work ethic of our campus goes beyond University of Jamestown and into the community.”
“Coming to Jamestown was one of the best decisions of my life.”
"The private school price tag can scare some people. But people also need to understand there’s lots of opportunities, and University of Jamestown gives great scholarships."

A big part of learning is living.
Yes, your GPA matters. But a great GPA, backed by a vibrant campus life – that means making friends who become family and sharing experiences that become lifelong memories – is what makes your time at UJ extraordinary.
