  • + 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

3.91 Average Rating
Thiel College is the perfect place to be if you are looking fo a great education in a small, welcoming atmosphere. With activities put on every weekend, there is alwasy something for students to do when they want to break away from the studying and hardwork they endure duing the school week. Thiel may be a little bit more pricey than other colleges, but being a Thiel student is one of the best experiences I have had in my life so far, and I do not regret attending here for one second.
Jessica from Cortland, OH
Thiel College has a small, beautiful campus with about 1,000 students (and small class sizes). The professors are really friendly and helpful. There are many extracurricular activities and fun events hosted on this campus.
Natalie from Tallmadge, OH
Once you attend Thiel College you become apart of the Thiel Family. Everyone at Thiel makes you feel at home whether it is the admissions, professors, staff, community, or other students. Everyone supports the students by helping them not only in the classroom, but also supporting them with what they do outside of the classroom!
