  • + 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)

Tiffin University is a very small campus. You don't have to worry about anything everyone here is really nice! Do not worry about getting lost everything is literally right here.
Tina.
I rate Tiffin University on a scale of 1-10 a 10. I am a single mother, and I am employed full time, and Tiffin has made my dreams of attending college a reality. Tiffin is the best college for working individuals, individuals that do not have free time to spare and single parents.

Katie from Ashland, OH
On a scale 1-10 this school is a 9, this is a great school for Criminal Justice majors. Its a quiet school with very few distractions so its easy to stay on a good track. The teachers are easy to talk to and the staff is amazing and is always there when you need them.
Dionte from Cleveland, OH
Tiffin is great! It has plenty of activities, the teachers there are great; I never though college could give me that one on one experience. Lastly, I cannot say how awesome the Heminger center is 4 basketball courts, an indoor track field, and a inside turf field.
