TMU comparison

TMU students stand out significantly from the competition. Private schools like TMU offer a level of excellence, service, and discipleship that the large institutions simply can't.

We equip students with the academic preparation and professional skills needed to become Christ-like leaders in their careers, callings, churches, and communities. Top academics. Rigorous career preparation and acceleration. Vibrant and meaningful campus life. Affordable and transparent costs. Biblically-rooted worldview. Can you have it all without compromise? At TMU, yes. True Christian higher education exists so that we do not have to make an either-or decision.
