Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (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. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known.

What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
Briercrest is a place to discover your God-given calling.

I love the dorm community and grew a lot socially.

I grew academically and always found support from professors.
Julie from Canada
Briercrest has been such a blessing to me! Living in a community of Christians who are dedicated to following Jesus, value quality learning and quality relationships, and like to have fun has been incredible. Briercrest is the full package!
Rylee from Canada
Briercrest is defined by its community, focusing its small student body around sports, chapel, student life, and dorm life. It offers a unique spread of transferable courses and programs for a Christian college, with professors that invest time into personally getting to know students and seeking to help them excel in their studies. Briercrest has become a second home to me, and I wouldn't want to attend any other school.
Ryan from Canada
Briercrest is a place of transformation. All the staff and faculty care about the students' lives and well-being, as well as their academic performance. The faculty are all very knowledgable and the classes are well-suited to the needs of the program they're designed for.
