Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
Taylor is pretty expensive, but, hey, it's a private school, so that's what you should be expecting. To make Taylor worth the money you have to try hard and put yourself out there. Do as best you can in your classes and get involved. Once you have made friends and are doing things you love Taylor is worth what you pay for it.
Heidi from Upland, IN
A discouraging aspect about Taylor is how expensive it is. However, I feel my time here has been worth every penny. I truly love the community I live in as well as my major classes. If I had to go back to senior year of high school, I would pick Taylor every single time.
Amanda from Omaha, NE
Taylor is a very good school, but it is also a very expensive school. It has rigorous academics, so don't apply if you're not willing to work hard! For being out in the middle of the cornfields, there are a surprising number of opportunities for various areas of study. Some examples include a partnership with a film school in LA, the chance to broadcast on the school radio station, student teaching in local schools, and working on software that will be used by missionaries on the field.
Jennifer from Charlotte, NC
Taylor is certainly a fairly expensive school. However, for the high quality of the courses, the outstanding professors, the student life, the various activities offered on and off campus, the money invested into Taylor is certainly worth the price. I believe that the price of Taylor motivates students to invest more into their Taylor experience. For example, because Taylor costs quite a lot, I strive to study more in order to learn and achieve good grades as well as become involved in as many activities as possible. If a student is able to experience the academic, spiritual, and social life that Taylor has to offer, the price tag of Taylor becomes a minimal concern.
Crystal from Bellefontaine, Ohio
Besides being a top notch school, Taylor offers a bazillion different study abroad programs, and they aren't too expensive. I'm going on their Freshman Irish Studies Program for an entire semester and it only costs an additional $500! That includes food, room and board, and travel. What a deal. I highly recommend Taylor.
Peter from Rapid City, SD
Taylor is expensive, for sure, but you get what you pay for! Every staff member on all levels is professional, the education is first rate, the development is ongoing...
Eric from Grand Rapids, MI
Taylor is pricey. No doubt about that. But almost all of my professors have doctorates, and I've never found myself wondering, "How does this apply to my life?"

MONEY ranked Taylor favorably in the 2016 Best Value College rankings. It probably would've been higher if they hadn't counted in the starting salary for Taylor graduates-- most Taylor grads aren't too focused on money, and a lot of them go on to be missionaries.

My professional writing professor has published 62 books and more than 3,500 articles. If that doesn't show how qualified the professors here are, I don't know what will.
Madeline from Columbus, OH
There is a constantly rising 72% chance (over 90% for business majors like myself) that you will be employed after graduation from Taylor in any major that you choose. This is a Christian University that has passionate, caring and friendly students, faculties, other employees, frequent visiting alumni and surrounding community that is probably only found here (this is my opinion out of 6 colleges visited).
