Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Ask your admissions counselor what his or her favorite Ivanhoe's shake is.
  • Be honest about yourself. Taylor wants unique individuals with unique strengths and struggles.
  • Be open to following God's will: If He wants you at Taylor, He'll make it possible for you.
  • Be willing to make friends and have fun.
  • Become a good essay writer; you'll need to write them for applications and scholarships.
  • Come visit campus and become connected with some of the staff.
  • Doing well on the ACT and/or the SAT is critical to receiving academic scholarships; retake them as many times as possible to improve your score.
  • Don't wait until the last minute to file your application. Some students receive the option of applying early, which increases their chances of acceptance.
  • Find out what placement tests you qualify for and study for them as best you can.
  • Get in contact with Taylor early during your high school career, preferably during your junior year.
  • Have a positive attitude during your interview and try to mention "community" during it.
  • If you know in advance what your major will be, get a head start on the type of work that you'll be doing in college. For example, if you're majoring in music, make sure you have some basic music theory knowledge before coming to Taylor.
  • Know yourself-because Taylor wants to recruit a person, not just a successful student.
  • Prepare yourself spiritually; Taylor's a place for genuine believers, not just nominal Christians. Your application will include an essay about your spiritual walk.
  • Study hard in high school and try to get a good GPA.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Get an early start on searching for campus jobs.
  • It is COLD in the winter. Bring a coat!
  • Maintain a good social life, and don't let studying rule your schedule.
  • Stay disciplined.
  • The football team is good.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Taylor's admissions interviews are totally laid-back. Students should wear whatever they're comfortable in and be ready to talk about themselves and their passions, because that's what Taylor really wants to know about. Interviews should be scheduled after the student has submitted an application and been notified by his or her admissions counselor. Because Taylor prefers personal interviews, admissions counselors are often willing to travel to the student's own hometown to conduct the interview.
Campus Tours
Admissions workers are always available to give campus tours, even when the rest of the campus is closed for break. Visitors can schedule personalized tours if they're visiting briefly or can join a group tour during "24 at Taylor."
Overnight Visits
One of Taylor's visitation opportunities is called "24 at Taylor." Prospective students attend Q&A sessions with faculty, attend classes, and stay overnight in a dormitory with a host student. "24 at Taylor" also includes tours and interviews, a chance to attend chapel, and information sessions about financial aid, athletics, music, and more. A typical schedule, plus information about various other visitation opportunities, can be found on Taylor's website.
Did You Know?
  • CREW members, the students who are in charge of welcoming prospective students, will lead your campus tour-and walk backwards the entire time!
  • Taylor was founded in 1846 as a women's college in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It later became a coed university and relocated to Upland. Taylor's Fort Wayne branch closed down after the 2009 academic year.
  • The best days to visit Taylor are at the end of the week or on the weekend because overnight visitors can experience chapel, open house, and various fun activities that demonstrate Taylor's vibrant student life.
