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

What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Allegheny provides a well rounded education of fantastic quality! It organizes internships and hands on experience for people in most all fields, has an exceptionally strong science program for a small liberal arts college, and Allegheny provides a flexibility in curriculum for people interested in various fields. Allegheny also is a college that simply has a faculty that is interested in you and how you are doing, and a student body that is genuinely friendly.
Danielle from Swanton, OH
Allegheny will push you to work until not only the professor is satisfied but so is the student. The key to a successful life at Allegheny is to work hard during the week and then go enjoy a full weekend with friends. The opportunities are endless with not only programs on campus, but joint projects with the community, and larger cities to visit nearby.
Emily
The Campus is simply beautiful. The thing I love though is definitely how personalized and student centralized they claim everything to be. Just the right word to the right person can make a real change and make your whole experience better from my understanding.

Allegheny has a close community where students and professors learn and grow together.

Students bond over the intense academic rigor, and thrive off of the challenges the professors present.

The faculty and alumni base at Allegheny works extremely hard to ensure that each student finds internships and future jobs.
