Discounted courses offered at William Jessup





 ROCKLIN, Calif., - William Jessup University’s School of Professional Studies (SPS) is continuing to offer discounted courses geared for degree seeking students who are having trouble getting into community colleges and non-degree seeking students who have been unable to complete specific courses at their primary college or university due to limited class offerings at their designated institutions. The program offers tuition at 50% of the regular rate for any student who is ineligible for other forms of financial aid.

 In addition, the SPS program will continue to offer bridge courses to students seeking to complete general education and free elective requirements of their degree programs.  Students who are new to the university and enrolled in less than six credit units during their first semester are eligible for the discounted program.

 “The expansion of our curricular offerings is designed to support a growing need that we are committed to accommodate,” said Sam Heinrich, Director of the School of Professional Studies. “The special discount has enabled these students to continue their academic programs and progress toward their career objectives.”

 Across the state, students are impacted; often times detoured from their educational pursuits because of declining course offerings and limited class sizes resulting from state budget cuts.

 Popular courses such as Human Anatomy and Human Physiology with a lab are just one component of these highly sought after offerings.

 “It is important to be able to provide high-demand courses that also serve as prerequisites and are preparative for students who are going into allied health programs or other medical related occupations,” Heinrich added.

 Courses are offered at half of the SPS rate and roughly one quarter of the per unit cost for traditional students. The university offers over 30 courses in the program.
