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.

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

What Students Are Saying

4.30 Average Rating
Emmanuel is a great school, the professors are easy to relate to and know what they are talking about. I have a great time attending this school.
J
Emmanuel has a small classroom setting within the large Boston community. As a science major, the lab work we get to do it incredible for the size of our school compared to others. The professors will go above and beyond to make sure we are receiving the best education and knowledge in order to embark on our future endeavors whether it be graduate programs or a full-time job out of college.
Kristina from Narragansett, RI
It has a great science program. The professors really do want to help you and see you do well. However, it's very small and it's almost like a high school. Also, not much ever happens on campus.
Terese from Lincoln, MA
Emmanuel College in Boston Massachusetts is great. Everyone at Emmanuel College, including staff, professors, and students are all welcoming. Emmanuel offers many ways in which to get involved on campus and in the Boston community.
Nicholas
Though many people feel the college has a homey and family-like atmosphere, you will often find yourself stuck in cliques. It has the nickname EC High for that reason. Keep your studies #1 and make smart decisions and you'll love it and the location.
