  • + 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.

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

What Students Are Saying

3.22 Average Rating
Everyone is very welcoming and recgonize you as I have been to the campus more than once and I was recgonized every time i was back there. Yes, this is an all girls school but rite next door is FDU and down the road is Drew University so you are not missing out on anything. Also, the dorms are not too small they look like they are just the right size.

I love the fact it has small size class, and they cared about students. I'm accepted and I'm considering this college. Tuition is expensive if without any scholarship and financial aid.
