  • (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)

What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Marymount College is ideal for those who don't want to get lost in the University/Larger Colleges. I have found that the smaller classrooms allow me to feel more comfortable in seeking further help from my teachers. Their study hall, as been a wonderful place for me to do my homework and research paper's I need to write. Being a new student, I am often not sure of many things, I have made many trips to the Administration Office and everybody I have come in contact with has been kind and helpful. This school really does make you feel like you matter and that you are important. I am enjoying everyday at my new school, I like my roommates and team mates. This school has everything I was seeking for college!

Marymount College is a wonderful place to begin the transition into college. It is small, beautiful, and all of the staff are there to help you out. My experience with them so far is incredible, and I cannot wait for it to get better throughout my four years.
Alexandra from Torrance, CA
What amazed me most about my new college is the welcoming atmosphere. The staff and students were so nice and full of energy and the unity between everyone on campus is great. The size of the campus is small so that there is a small student to professor ratio I believe this will allow me to achieve more knowledge then in an average community college.
