  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

the school AIC is great. it is small which makes it easier to get around campus and for teachers to get to know you on a personal level. the area of Springfield that the school is placed in isn't very safe but the campus police make sure its safe on campus.
Sofia from Mass
This college is quite diverse and fit for an individual looking for a small school to fit in. small classes and lot of attention from professors
