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

What Students Are Saying

If you're looking for a place to have a great connection with teachers, a friendly and safe environment while having fun at the same time, Colby-Sawyer is the place for you. One never thinks twice about their safety here as campus safety does a grab job of ensuring the well-being of everyone. With a small school consisting of less than 2000 students, you'll always see friendly faces you know.

If you love a close knit communitity then this is the college for you. The teachers here are great and super understanding and really make an effort to get to know their students. Also it is a very small school but there is always something to do.
