  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

AAMU is a great institution where students come first. The teachers care about us and were not just a number. When I have kids my kids will attend this great University.

Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University is a great HBCU to attend. This institution is very diverse with students coming from all around the world. You will meet a ton of great people here.
Jada from Montgomery, AL
This school is for young people wanting to study hard and having a relaxing experience at the same time. There is always something going on. If you are the big city type used to 24 hours entertainment, this school is definitely NOT for you.
