New Jessup University Received Teacher Credentialing Approval
A new university in Rocklin has just received the state’s blessing on its plan to educate future teachers.

Fifty six students enrolled in the new William Jessup University last August, with an eye to becoming teachers. But the Sacramento region’s first private four-year university needed an imprimatur from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, which it just received. It allows students to apply for teaching credentials when they graduate. The school moved to Rocklin last year, leaving behind its days as San Jose Christian College. But expanding there would have been too pricey. The small university opted instead to relocate in the former Herman Miller furniture plant near Highway 65.
