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

3.17 Average Rating
In my time at Jefferson College, I have been fortunate enough to have instructors that have greatly impacted my life both inside and outside of college. The incredibly helpful and energetic staff, small campus, and friendly student body are just three of the many attributes of Jefferson College. This school has academically prepared me for a university level education by helping me challenge myself in every way I can.

Small enough to get all the help you need. Big enough to feel apart of something. Jefferson College offers the help you need and keeps you involved in many different ways.
