Tiffin University was established in 1888 and now offers nationally accredited graduate and undergraduate degrees in Business Administration, top-notch bachelor's and master's degrees in Criminal Justice and Social Sciences, and distinctive degrees in the Arts and Sciences. All through our history, the University has nurtured a student-centered setting and a strong sense of real community for our students, faculty and staff. Tiffin University has always believed in offering the highest quality education - "an education for real life."
Tiffin University is one of the most affordable private colleges in Ohio. How can this be true? It's simple. We offer a whole host of ways our students can reduce costs and still gain the benefits of small classes taught by high-caliber faculty.
More than 90 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid that averages almost $10,000. This aid comes in many forms, including Tiffin University Grants and Scholarships, Federal and State Grants, Loans, and Work Study Programs.
Tiffin University treats each prospective student as an individual. From the time you make your first contact with TU, through the application process, you'll always be a "person," never a "number."
Here are the basic requirements for admission:
Your First Steps Toward Admission
- You should have earned a diploma from an accredited high school in a college preparatory course of study, or have a GED certificate.
- We will also consider the following in granting admission - class rank, strength of curriculum, performance in curriculum, GPA, and your ACT or SAT scores.
- We recommend that you have completed four units of English, three units of Math, three units of Science, and three units of Social Studies.
You Can Expect Personalized Attention
When Tiffin University receives your application, we will review it in detail and make a decision on admission immediately. Our goal is to provide each prospective student with personalized attention. As we review your application, we may ask for more information, which could include letters of recommendation, an essay, or a personal interview.
At Tiffin, a small campus means big opportunities to get involved and explore new activities. One morning each week, we hold no classes so you can engage in your choice of more than 35 student clubs and organizations.Write for TU Review (Tiffin's literary magazine), join Student Government, participate in Greek Life, get involved in Intramural Sports or join one of our many Student Organizations.
If you thrive on sports, you'll love the excitement of our NCAA Division II athletics and club sports. Or, if you are like more than 20 percent of Tiffin students, you might want to participate in Up in the Air or Front Street (our award-winning vocal and instrumental music groups), the University choir, or theater. No matter what your major, all Tiffin students are eligible for substantial performing arts and athletic scholarships.
