  • + 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)

Lindenwood, and its teachers are amazing. I can ask any of my teachers about anything I need help with, and they will take whatever time is needed to make sure that I understand the information. The price for the level of education I'm getting is great.
