Why Humphreys

There are many reasons to choose to attend Humphreys University. We’ve compiled the list of Top 6 Reasons to Choose Humphreys University.


We have history.

We have been in continuous operation in California since 1896, providing accessible quality education. We have traditionally kept our classes small – five to twenty students – to provide the support and guidance you need to succeed.


We are nonprofit.

We are proud to be nonprofit. Nonprofit universities, like ours, are focused on improving the student’s experience and increasing student success, rather than focusing on making a profit.


We are accredited.

We are regionally accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, or, WSCUC. Other schools with WSCUC accreditation include CSU schools, UC schools, and other private universities.


We offer financial aid.

Various federal financial aid options, including federal student loans are available for those who qualify. We will work with you one-on-one to ensure you understand what options are available to you.


We put you first.

You’re more than just a face in the crowd. We are here for you-literally. You will be assisted by familiar staff and faculty on our safe and inviting campus. There are no long periods of waiting or automated voice operators.


We provide flexibility.

Open enrollment allows you to apply year round, not a full year in advance. The pace of our 11-week quarter system makes it easy to balance the demands of life. Courses are available evenings, online, and in hybrid formats.

What sets us apart.

Our students, staff, and faculty all choose Humphreys for the same reasons. We love what we do, how long we’ve done it, and why we do it. Here’s a summary of what sets us apart.
