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. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

I enjoy the teachers I have here. They take time to explain, answer your questions, and assist you. I made excellent grades this semester and look forward to the Spring 2013 semester.
Love my education!
I absolutely love Faulkner. The Faculty and staff is very helpful and caring. I highly recommend this school to anyone.
Alexandra Howard from Mc Intosh, AL
The price for classes is amazing compared to other schools and quality of the classes isn't lowered. Personal and friendly instructors offer help along with expectations of a large university. I expected no social college life but there is probably more of a variety of friends, people right out of high school or people going back for higher education can be seen in all of your classes on all 3 campuses along with many activities to be active in.
Alexandria from Foley, AL
This school is a place where teachers care and learning is fun
Taylor
Excellent college for a first time college student. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 10. You get a great education for less the price.
