What Students Are Saying

4.01 Average Rating
If you want a University that is academically challenging and spiritually focused, then this University is a great choice. Evaluate the University's programs to see if there is a fit, and come to the campus to see the very welcoming and supportive atmosphere.
Randy from Shingletown, CA
Seek first the kingdom and all these will be added unto you. Seeking God and working hard will benefit any student that attends Simpson. Take advantage of the Chapel services and the opportunities to get to know the staff and students because community is a very important part of life of campus.
Giovanna from Redding, CA
1) Apply early; I have full tuition covered currently and I even missed the early registration date. You can probably almost get a full ride if you qualify for early registration. 2) Visit the school; there is an event called Genesis weekend and it is a lot of fun and will help you get a much better grasp of the nearly unbelievable school atmosphere. 3) Genuinely try and care about your studies while you're there; it's hard not to learn something while you're their but if you actually put effort into it there is a mind-boggling storehouse of information and experience to gain from.

This school is for you if you are willing to work hard. Many of the classes will be very difficult if you come with the attitude that you can just slide by with C's. The tuition is costly, so unless you have a small fortune, you can't afford to barely slide by. While the academics are challenging, the atmosphere of the school is amazing. Students gather all over campus to pray for and encourage each other. Chapel attendance is mandatory. Apply early! If you can, do the Early Deposit Program that is due in March. It is only $100 and it gives you priority in financial aid awarding!
Jessica from Montague, CA
Apply Early. Don't need to worry about getting into classes as there is plenty of room.
SIBY from Sunnyvale, CA
Apply early. There's a scholarship for applying early! Come visit campus. Meeting tons of people from Simpson is what confirmed for me that Simpson is where I wanted to go to school.
Amy from Cottonwood, CA
Prospective students, must be prepared mentally to take on the task of completing their classes with high enough grades to graduate college. I would encourage prospective students to be willing to expand the mind and to learn new things. also, make sure all assignments are turned in on time.
Christian from Torrance, CA
Simpson University is not a party school. It's a place for students to study and learned. They help you better off your future and it's a diverse school in the heart eventhough the population of white students is high but they are all friendly and peaceful to you. I enjoy been there at Simpson.
