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

3.17 Average Rating
This school is a great place to get your basic classes and more out of the way before transferring to an University. All of the teachers I have met really try to help you succeed in college. Not only are the teachers great, but it is in a safe central environment where the campus is breath taking!
Geovanna from Rowlett, TX
Not what I expected from a community college. The course load is rigorous enough to prepare for a transfer to a larger university, and the professors are very knowledgeable. I am very satisfied with this college.
Alaina from Frisco, TX
Collin College is the best and most advanced community college that there is. It will surely prepare you for any serious degree that you want to purse (whether there or anywhere else), but you must be ready to work for it. The faculty, the policies, and the overall environment are very conducive to learning- especially so for self starters.
Alan from Plano, TX
This college has an excellent faculty that genuinely cares for their students. The Honors program helps to unlock the potential of each student that is willing to work hard. The flexibility of scheduling makes it to where anyone can find classes that meets their scheduling guidelines.
