TABOR COLLEGE IS DECIDEDLY CHRISTIAN; MUST I BE A CHRISTIAN TO ATTEND?

While we make no apologies for our Christian commitment, we do not require an individual be a professing Christian to attend. Students are exposed to Christianity through their coursework, our community and mandatory chapel attendance. We ask students who attend Tabor College to sign a community lifestyle covenant. The standards contained in our covenant include abstaining from sexual immorality, tobacco and alcohol while a student at Tabor.

WHAT WILL BE THE COST, AND ARE THERE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?

WHAT LANGUAGE SKILLS/TOEFL SCORE MUST I HAVE?

If a student’s high school level classes were taught in English, the Vice President may make a decision to waive the TOEFL requirement. For all other international students, the minimum TOEFL score is 525 for the paper based test or 195 on the computer based test, or 70 on the internet based test.
