  • + 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

3.04 Average Rating
Attending Aquinas College has just been a blessing in my life. Learning is such a fulfilling experience but the best part is having a personal relationship with God and knowing that the staff and students care about the same values as I do. The values of integrity, truth and faith.
Michelle from Lavergne, TN
I am so proud to be a student of one of Nashville, TN's best nursing RN programs! We have the most clinical hospital hours, fantastic instructors, and an amazing class of students. At Aquinas College, the motto is - no one gets left behind, everyone is encouraged to join a study group, ask for help, ask another if they need help.
