Prior to the Civil War, Methodist leaders established Taylor University in 1846 in order to provide an educational facility for women. Within two years, Taylor had already emerged as a co-educational institution. As the University grew, it initiated a correspondence course through the postal service in 1938. Since then, Taylor’s distance learning program continues to evolve, updating with technology.
Today, Taylor University Online continues to operate as a branch of the Christian, private not-for-profit Taylor University located in Upland, Indiana. Students have various options for an online education, including a bachelor’s degree, associate’s degrees, a teaching program, certificates, and the choice to enroll in single courses.
