Ambassador University, founded as Ambassador College in 1947, was a four-year, Christian, liberal arts college, affiliated with the Worldwide Church of God, until it closed its doors in 1997.

Ambassador began as Ambassador College in Pasadena, California and opened a second campus in 1960 in Hertsfordshire, United Kingdom. Four years later, a third campus began operations in Big Sandy, Texas. When there were more graduates than employment opportunities within the Worldwide Church of God, the campuses consolidated in Pasadena, only to reopen the Big Sandy campus to meet increasing enrollment demands shortly after.

Almost ten years later, the Pasadena and Big Sandy campuses consolidated operations again in Texas. In 1994 the college became Ambassador University and was granted full accredited status from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
