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.

What Students Are Saying

3.32 Average Rating
the campus is beautiful and gives you the benefit of having access to manhattan without feeling like you're actually in the city.
jenna from queens, ny
this school is fantastic! the professors of my major are phenomenal, interesting, and engaged in what they do. the cost is reasonable, even for out of state students, and i haven't met a student here that was inconsiderate or brash.
Brittany from Harker Heights, TX
My sister goes to this school for the EDM program and I was recently accepted to the same program. By the looks of it, my sister greatly improved with video making, typography, and digital design and she is starting in arts that she has never done before! It's a very varied curriculum which makes for more rounded students!
Monica from New York City, NY
