After getting to Tiffin University’s campus, you realize how small it is. Even so, there are green spaces and benches for you to lounge or sit. There’s also a nearby convenience store that means you’ll be able to buy things quickly in an emergency. When you visit, or settle in after moving in, you’ll be able to explore—the campus and Tiffin itself. The town is also small, but it contains some interesting places to stop and visit. While the Hedges-Boyer Park is on the opposite edge of town, don’t forget about heading there so you can rest under a tree, study, or maybe even take a nap. While you’re at it, stop in at the American Civil War Museum of Ohio; you’ll see many items there that you may have never seen before.
Overview of Tiffin University
Though the campus and student population are both small – there are just under 3,000 enrolled each year - the student-to-faculty ratio doesn’t quite match up and is a little bigger than you might expect — 16 to 1. So, get ready to have a plan that allows you to meet with professors when you need to speak to them. And get to know your fellow students. Some students are earning associate degrees, some bachelor’s, some master’s and post-master’s certificates, and some are earning doctoral degrees.

Tuition Cost & Financial Aid
As you are considering the different universities you’re interested in, your family will likely discuss the costs of each institution. The overall average cost of the education at Tiffin University, for a recent academic year, was $40,200. Your parents likely won’t have to pay the entire cost—your financial aid, if you qualify, will cover a good amount. What’s left after financial aid is applied to your bill is the average net price. For a recent year, this amount was $21,539. However, because financial aid is provided depending on a family’s annual income, what you actually owe in the end will be highly affected by your family’s income. Families who earn less than $30,000 pay around $18,793, families who earn between $48,001 and $75,000 pay around $22,454, and families earning between $75,001 and $110,001 pay around $24,219.
The entire freshmen class at Tiffin qualified for financial aid in 2018-2019. So, each freshman received an average of $4,858 in grants or scholarships and 98% received about $13,910 in institutional grants and scholarships.

You may know right from the start that you’re going to graduate from Tiffin University. This is important for a small, but important statistic called the retention rate. The retention rate includes all students who return to campus for their second year of school. At Tiffin University, this rate is 65% and it’s often used for new students to gauge how much they will get out of a school. For Tiffin, it’s better-than-chance that you will appreciate your classes, teachers, and the general atmosphere.
Another rate you might want to check is the graduation rate. The 4-year graduation rate is 22% and the 6-year graduation rate is 33%. While this is low, it’s important to remember that students who have transferred to Tiffin from another campus aren’t counted in these numbers and those who transfer away to find a new major the school doesn’t have also aren’t counted. Also, the graduation rate only counts the numbers of students who complete their majors within 4 or 6 years.
