  • + 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)

Kevin from Erwin, TN
I like king college very much it has helped me get to know many new people. It is a small school but i have found that i learn better in a small classroom situation. This college is just perfect for me.
Robert from Arab, AL
King College is the most beautiful, peaceful, loving place to learn and excel. I have grown so much here, serving as the President of the Student Body, and Resident Assistant. It is truly an honor to be here, and all the professors are caring--you are not just a number.
