The Tiffin University Story: Our Strong Sense Of Community & Dedication To Each Student

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 life.”

A “New Kind Of Institution”

Tiffin University represents a new kind of institution in the United States.

TU has successfully transitioned from traditional seated students to a mixture of seated and online students, from across the country and around the world. Tiffin University provides a personal and practical education for motivated students who want real-world experience and results.

There are no “ivory towers” at Tiffin University.  Almost all of our faculty have spent time working in the field and bring to the classroom real, first-hand knowledge about the subjects they’re teaching. They also bring with them valuable, real-world connections to enable and empower our students to find the best internships and other experiences that will transform their future.

Our Main Campus & Our Academic Growth

The main campus in Tiffin is a beautiful 135-acre blend of traditional historic and modern buildings that create a vibrant and warm home for an educational community. In addition to the growth in Tiffin, TU graduate and undergraduate programs are offered online and at Fremont, Toledo, and at several sites in the Greater Cleveland area. The MBA is also offered at Bucharest, Romania.
