    Roger Williams University is a very serious financial investment. Though the university's tuition is below the national average, Roger Williams has many fees that get added to your monthly bill. Room and board prices at Roger Williams University are slightly higher than the national average but the housing options are very limited for Freshman. Books and lab materials are not included in the cost of tuition, which add upwards of $500.00 to your bill monthly.

    Roger Williams is not a cheap school and at times I have a hard time paying but I love it here and I know majority of the campus feels the same.

The teacher to student ratio is small, leaving more of a classroom feel than a lecture.
