Students and Parents in Dorm imageCollege is an exciting new journey for both students and parents. Johnson University Tennessee understands that all parents want what is best for their children, including an affordable education from an accredited institution in a strong academic environment. Parents can rest assured that faculty and staff are committed to the academic success, social development, and spiritual formation of every student.


University founder Ashley Johnson envisioned a school that would educate even the poorest of individuals seeking to serve the Lord. Johnson University Tennessee offers affordable tuition and generous financial aid options. As a result, research has shown that, upon graduation, JUTN graduates have significantly less college-related debt than the national average.


The Johnson University System is a leader in accreditation among Christian institutions of higher learning. With JUTN’s breadth of academic program offerings (more than 70 in all), parents can be confident that graduates are well equipped for the career of their choice.

All undergraduate programs offer both a Bible & Theology Core and Arts & Sciences Core to ensure that students are well-rounded and have a solid foundation for their area of study.

Safety and Surroundings

Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Johnson University Tennessee offers a scenic and secure campus just 15 minutes from downtown Knoxville, Tennessee and 20 minutes from the airport. Most faculty members live on campus not far from the students, enhancing the spirit of community. To further ensure safety and respect both on and off campus, each student agrees to uphold standards of conduct outlined in the Student Handbook.

Keeping in Touch

The joy of a student when a care package arrives is indescribable. If you would like to show your encouragement as your student gears up for a tough exam week or celebrates a milestone, look no further. Campus dining services makes it easy for you to order birthday cakes, fruit baskets, “survival packs,” and other treats for delivery to your student.
