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

This college is a lot of money on the downside.
Kate from Lusk, Wy, WY
You definitely get what you pay for, but with a hefty price. It is financially expensive, but it is so worth it. The scholarships are definitely possible, and on campus work study or cash jobs are utilized by many of the students (and they are great). What many of the students do is do the Gen Eds at a community college first, then come to Master's to save a lot of money. Make sure that the classes you are taking transfer though, otherwise you might waste money you thought you were saving! The online department at Master's offers a lot of these online, and there is an opportunity for dual enrollment for high school students so that they may get a step ahead while fulfilling their graduation requirements. If God wants you at Master's, He will get you there.

you definitely get your money's worth here--no doubt about it. if your looking to pay for a higher education--this is the place to get it!

Often times, the pricing of this private education scare people away. However, with the help of the financial aid department and the investment you are making in your future, you will not regret the money spent for a moment. To grow in your walk with the Lord, be equipped for your career and ready to face life, you will understand that the investment will have a return that is ten fold.

it is expensive but there is a lot of financial aid available. Almost every student has amazing stories of how God has provided for them every semester to continue to come here.
Joseph from Palomar Mountain, CA
Since it is a private school it is definitely more on the pricey side but it is definitely worth every penny! The experience here is amazing and something to never forget. You will definitely walk away with a great knowledge and many great friends.

The administration is dedicated to ensuring that your experience is positive and that you get the best out of each and every activity.
Ryan from Saugus, CA
The financial side of TMC is quite pricey. Knowing that it is a private school the cost can be surprising at a first glance. But don't let that shock you. TMC provides many alternative to finances such as scholarships and loans. For me, I didn't want to attend until I was able to get all the General Education Courses finished at a City College so that I can drop the price. They were very understanding and sought to help my personal situations and gave me other alternative to handling the financial side. So if you have concerns towards the finances, share it with them and they will truly respect and assist you in your need.
Vincent from Long Beach, CA
It's a private school so it's a bit pricy but it's worth it! The classes are top-notch. Also, because it is a great school, they are able to attract quality faculty.
As a Christian student, the Bible teaching especially will impact you the rest of your life. After just one year, one can come away with a new hunger and passion for God's Word. You will be better equipped to study it and have a whole new grip on the Old Testament. If getting a good Bible education is important to you, this school would be a great choice.
Athletics are also good and there's opportunity to participate in a large variety of intramural sports. Watching sports games is free and a great way to relieve homework stress. If one tires of that, one can always stop by the library and pick up a book to read. The library is large, well-stocked, and easy to use. One great feature is the ILL service which allows you to get just about any book you want from libraries all over the country for free. This is a great resource, both for research and fun.
When studying, the best places to study are the library, the dorm lounge or just outside. If you have a car there are many other opportunities. Since the college is located in L.A there is lots to choose from.
The fact that it is located in Los Angelos is another reason why it is a good school. There are lots of great restaurants and good shopping opportunities. The mall also has neat stores and is located within easy driving distance.
