  • + 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)

What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
Franklin College is providing me with an amazing experience. The professors have proven to want to help me be better at what I want to do in my career. I have zero complaints about the college.
Timothy from Camby, IN
Franklin College is a small community. There are always speakers and events to go to on this campus. The relationships between the teachers and students is one that is genuine and caring; you are never just a number at FC.
Jasmine from Indianapolis, IN
Franklin is the perfect school if you are willing to work hard for your classes, be involved in community work, and get a great liberal arts education. The classes are challenging and all the professors (90 % of whom have a Ph. D. or equivalent) always encourage every student to put forth his/her best effort. However, not only academics are emphasized, but athletics and, of course, community and friendships are extremely important.
