Humphreys College is an independent institution of higher education located in Stockton, California.

The college, established in 1896, is committed to providing a number of undergraduate degree and certificate programs in areas related to law, business, human services, and liberal arts.

With more than 100 years of service, the college has earned a noteworthy reputation and stable growth. John R. Humphreys Sr., was the founder and first president of the college. After his death in 1937, John R. Humphreys Jr. succeeded his father as the second president of the college.

The name of the college changed several times since its inception. In July 1947, the college took its name from the family who founded it. In the same year, the institution was reorganized and incorporated as a nonprofit educational corporation under the California Education Code.

The trustees of the college, comprising alumni, educators, distinguished citizens, and friends of the college, established a non-accredited, four-year night law school, in 1950. It offers a professional program of education leading to the Juris Doctor degree, which is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California.

The college expanded in 1987, with the establishment of its Modesto campus. Again in 1990, as a part of its expansion program, the college established a campus in Sacramento.
