Get a glimpse into what makes UJ a “Best in the Midwest University” according to US News and World Report.

Small University. Big Thinkers.

University of Jamestown Accelerated is the online division of University of Jamestown—a private, liberal arts University that’s helped students succeed since 1883. We are a community dedicated to the development of our students—who they are. Who they want to be. And how they can make a difference in their future careers.

UJ is constantly growing and expanding, while staying true to our Christian roots. We care for our students like family. And believe their success can only be found by pursuing new and innovative approaches to education.

“Our students are first and foremost here. And our faculty want to get to know them both as students and as people.”

– Dr. Polly Peterson, UJ President
