Tuition & Funding

Taylor University provides every student with a scholarship. Tuition is reduced from $500 per credit to $325 per credit, making the overall tuition cost under $12,000 for the 36-credit hour Master of Arts in Ministry program.

Students who participate in the Northview residency program receive an additional $6,000 scholarship from Northview Church, lowering the tuition cost to under $6,000.

Textbooks are not included in the cost of tuition. Other costs include a $300 matriculation fee, which is then credited towards tuition for the first course, as well as ministry trip fees to Chicago ($350) and New York City Relief ($1,100).

Northview residents receive a $1,000 monthly stipend from Northview Church and New York City Relief expenses are covered. The church can also provide housing options for single residents. Students in the Northview residency program must provide their own transportation to Northview Church and health insurance.
