Jubilee University Becomes Fully Independent Institution

On December 31, 2022, Jubilee University will conclude its academic partnership with Olivet University which previously allowed students to study at the Jubilee campus and receive an accredited degree via its status as an Olivet extension campus.

Starting January 1, 2023, Jubilee University will become fully independent and current students will be unable to receive an accredited degree until the institution receives initial accreditation from either a regional or national accrediting agency approved by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and the U.S. Department of Education (ED). Academically, the university will continue to operate in the State of Missouri as a Religious Exempted School.

All current students have been given the choice to either transfer to a different Olivet campus or withdraw from Olivet and enroll exclusively with Jubilee University. To accommodate students in this process, both institutions will honor transfer credits taken at either institution for the foreseeable future.

Jubilee University looks forward to graduating its first own cohort in the near future. For any questions or concerns, please reach out to

The background to our decision:
Jubilee University has always been fully independent, both in terms of governance, administration, and finance, ever since its inception on May 20, 2020. The academic partnership was entered with the hope of quickly raising the quality of education and accelerate the institution’s independent accreditation. Jubilee is grateful for having been able to quickly develop its educational system over these past years to now be on par with accredited schools and to have greatly improved its own prospects of receiving initial accreditation.
