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.

Hartwick College is ideal for students looking for a small and friendly campus. The professors here actually know who you are and are more than happy to help if you are behind. Hartwick makes the transition into higher education very manageable and achievable.
Ruth from Bronx, NY
Hartwick College has numerous of opportunities for their students for those who attend. Some courses are difficult, however there is plenty of help available in the writing center and office hours if needed. Small class sizes so students do not get lost in the class lectures.
Annamarie from Windham, NY
Hartwick College is a great school with about 1500 students. The faculty and staff here are greatly dedicated to the education of the students. They also do their best to accommodate for special or financial needs.
Justin from Fort Edward, NY
Other than the expensive tuition (though absolutely worth it), it's the dream school. Small classes, small but beautiful campus, and nice dorms. It's easy to connect with your professors and classmates because of the small campus population.
