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. 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.

Grambling is a great school for the price because it is not to much to pay and they do things where if it is to much to pay you can get ways to lower the prices by making good grades and getting out of state fee;s waived
Domonique McElroy from Little Rock, AR
If you choose Grambling State University as your college, you will not be sorry. Even with some downfalls, the good outweighs the bad. And as regards to the typical amount being around 7,000 a semester, its a cheap college with high quality.
Jasmine from Colfax, LA
This school is among the cheapest accredited schools out there. Along with out of state fees, scholarships and financial aid it becomes a little more affordable than most.
Nadine from Grambling, LA
Cost are good but and dorms are the best!
Starresha from Chicago, IL
I cannot even put into words how much I love Grambling State University. If you would pay a visit during Homecoming, Springfest, or take a trip to New Orleans for the Bayou Classic then you would see how much the students love Grambling. I fell in love the first time I stepp on campus and I have grown to love it even more. The students have the southern hospitality and bring so much energy to the school. Grambling football games and band is like no other and I go to every game that they have in every sport. Grambling is just a great place to be and anyone who comes will have fun. There is also education things to know about the campus because each building and dorm on campus is named after a significant African American person who meant so much to history. I encourage anyone to come visit and experience it for themselves.
Alexandria from Mather, PA
My only problem with the cost are the out-of-state fees. Thank God for scholarships. Keep your grades up & stay on top of those scholarships!
Devanny from Birmingham, AL
When making the decision to transfer from on University to another one Grambling State University stayed on my mind because of the extravagant Early Literacy program that they incorporated for those students who wanted to get a Bachelors Degree in this field.
