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.

Covenant College is a place where students are challenged in their academic life and also in their spiritual life. The professors strive to be connected to their students and help them grow in academic areas, and also teaching students to glorify God in all that they do. This all takes place on a beautiful campus that offers something for everybody.

Covenant is very Christ centered. It's very small, but that means that you have the opportunity to build relationships with your professors. The people are in general very friendly and quirky.

Sabrina from MIami, FL
Covenant is a school where students are immersed in a Christ-centered community: faculty, staff, and students encourage one another to glorify Christ, to discover your personal calling, and to think critically and with a biblical perspective about contemporary culture. Covenant isn't just about work, however; there are tons of on- and off-campus student activities, Chattanooga is minutes away, and deep friendships are a joy.
Covenant College is a beautiful campus with a wonderful student community. All the professors truly care about each student. Christ is pre-eminent in all the things that Covenant does.
