Tuition, Financial Aid and Financing

We strive to provide programs that are unique and innovative, yet relevant and rigorous. We are committed to providing a quality education responsive to the needs of society at tuition rates that are considerably less than most other accredited institutions. Tuition and fees vary from program-to-program. Click the following links to obtain specific information on program costs.

Short-Term Financing

For Masters degree program students, the University permits students to pay tuition on an installment basis. This generally requires an initial payment equal to 30% of the tuition with the balance paid, depending on the program, over a term of five months.


Taft University participates in VA and TA education programs designed specifically for active duty, reserve, veterans or spouse and family. In most cases your military benefits will cover 100% of your tuition, fees and books. You could earn your degree with no out of pocket expenses. The DANTES Tuition Assistance Management Program (TAMP) processes the tuition reimbursement for active duty Army, Active Guard and Reserves (AGR), Air National Guard, and Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) personnel upon successful completion of courses. Tuition assistance policy questions must be directed to the respective branch of Service. Information regarding Tuition Assistance (TA) for each branch of service can be found on the DANTES Website. DANTES requires specific procedures to be followed. The first step is to contact the military educational counselor to discuss the program options and the TA approval process. Veterans can discuss eligibility directly with a VA education representative, using a toll free number 888-442-4551. They will answer your questions and provide instructions on the application process.

Please contact the University with any questions your counselor cannot answer.

Financial Aid

Many businesses and professional firms recognize the value of nationally accredited distance learning programs for employee education. The University has established the Partners in Professional Education (PIPE) Program. This is a co-operative undertaking between employers and the University to provide graduate level educational opportunities to qualified employees. Through the PIPE Program eligible employees may obtain tuition grants ranging between five and twenty percent. Many organizations sponsor employer-assisted tuition reimbursement programs. The University will provide all reasonable assistance to supply the necessary documentation to students seeking employer reimbursement.

At this time, only one William Howard Taft University program is eligible for participation in Federal Title IV Financial Aid programs – the Juris Doctor – Executive Track program. Additional information on Federal Student Aid is available here.
