  • + 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)

I would give Johnson C Smith University a 7 on a scale of 10. It has a nice environment and good teachers but there is various issues with financial aid. If you have decided to come to the University make sure that you always stay on your finances.
