  • (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)

What Students Are Saying

2.64 Average Rating
While currently attending Georgia Health Sciences University (now known as Georgia Regents University), I can that I am more satisfied with the professors, education, and knowledge gained from this university than I anticipated. Previously I had mediocre satisfaction with college but this school, especially their Allied Health department, has exceeded my expectations. This is an amazing school with a lot to offer!
