"The purpose of all education should be to foster and further the supreme purpose of life, the development of a majestic and well-balanced personality."


The University of Ascension Science and The Physics of Rebellion (UASPR) and Divine Administration offers opportunities for on-campus and non-resident education and training. The heart and focus of our studies is to further spiritual progress and give wisdom a place in the temporal plane of living. Programs at the UASPR have touched thousands of lives for over 30 years and have been an instrument for inspiring a global perspective in all departments of human thinking, feeling and doing. Our curriculum is inspired by prophets, intellects, poets, artists, scholars and savants. Our faculty apply their own gifts and talents to the sum of useful knowledge to impart this to the student. Being fully dedicated to the upliftment of the planet, UASPR invites all truth-seekers and those with sincere hearts of service to visit our campus and be introduced to this academy of higher learning. UASPR helps you to manifest your unique destiny rather than give you just a diploma to hang on the wall. Employers hire individuals who can do the job, not diplomas.


This unique university is for students who want to be outside the system. It is for higher spiritual seekers and students of higher consciousness, who seek spiritual education and study the Fifth Epochal Revelation. As opposed to studying just curriculum or concepts, the UASPR is a special workplace dedicated to building your spiritual life. When you live on campus, you will experience and benefit from the divine authority structure of on-campus eldership. Off-campus students receive a different diploma than on-campus students. Each student’s relationship to the Creator determines the student’s unique destiny as it unfolds in God’s perfect will.
