  • (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.

Excellent School , Easy Work , Great Professors And Great Resources If You Need Extra Help
Victoria from Lithonia, GA
CTU is extremely convenient with all classes taken at home, online. The professors are very knowledgable and available for regularly scheduled chat sessions, plus can be contacted at any time with any questions or concerns. The class format is based on how you will use the information in the real world and is more focused on projects and career-based application, versus tests and memorization of concepts & theories.
Bela from Cleveland, TN
CTU has brought to my career new and advanced computer knowledge such as grid and cluster computer. CTU offers a variety of learning tools that help students get the most of important topics. CTU is the best University.

The advisers are great. The classes are challenging. Students are engaged.
Angela from Colorado Springs, CO
A nice alternative to brick and mortar. As to anything in life, it has its good points and its not so good points. No education is cheap. Don't expect this one to be either, unless you qualify for grants.
