  • + 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)

Amoya from Springfield, MA
American International College is one of the most diverse and welcoming schools I have ever set my foot on. This campus not only invites and welcomes their students but guides them in the right direction and encourages their students to be the best. Not to mention that they would not let you fail a course but they help assist you with all the tools necessary to reach your full potential.
