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.

Tenaria from Longview, TX
I have been attending Kilgore College for 3 years now. It's a very dedicated school. KC has lots of tradition that makes everyone feel at home. Home of the lovely rangerettes.
A nursing student from Kilgore
For any students that are not ready to jump into a 4-year university but want to get some of that college experience, Kilgore College is the place to start. The teachers are willing to work with students outside of class to help them through the semester, and students have access to free tutoring, job opportunities, and workout facilities. The college is definitely full of students from different cultures and will help prepare students for a 4-year university in no time!
