Get ready for Johnson University

Johnson University has been helping students students explore their passions and find their callings since 1893. Our three-fold educational approach blends the arts and sciences as well as the Bible and theology with professional studies, preparing students to make a meaningful impact on the world in the name of Christ. Our professional programs span eight schools, from Business and Education to Congregational Ministry, and our low student-faculty ratio of 10:1 contributes to a more personalized college experience. 

Johnson University’s tuition is less than half the national average for private schools, meaning Johnson students leave the University with nearly half the amount of education-related debt upon graduation. During Preview Days, students can experience campus life, attend a class, meet professors, and learn more about all the academic programs we offer.
