  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
Taylor is an awesome place where you will be pushed academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The off and on-campus programs will allow you to have a heart for the things God loves. This is a very extraordinary place.
Lawrence from Upland, IN
Taylor is a place where Christian community is valued above all else. The integration of faith and learning is absolutely crucial, and the college strives to excel in both categories. If you want to be a part of the #1 regional college in the Midwest, you'll learn, grow, and find love and acceptance regardless of where you come from.
Madeline from Columbus, OH
When I first came to the University, I was surprised that the descriptions of it being in the middle of a cornfield were spot-on. Being in such a remote location though, drives community together and a chance to get to know more of the 2,500 people than one would if it were the same size college in a big city like New York or Illinois. This is a college that keeps its students in an area where they have to face their challenges, both academic and social, and not run away from them.
Jason from Wheaton, IL
taylor is one of the best colleges to go to in order to grow spiritually. it is where you will meet friends who truly care and are intentional about relationships. the professors actually take an interest in you, know who you are, and go out of their way to help you succeed.
