  • + 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.

What Students Are Saying

3.62 Average Rating
A very focused and disciplined school for it's unruly subject: art. In the first semester you already get an idea of what you will move onto in the following years to come. Your time is not wasted and there is so much to learn at MIAD! There is not a day that goes by that students here are not improving in some way and your self expression is something that is your most important tool.

An amazing school you feel that you belong at. Works insanely hard to set up your future career. Is a great choice if you want to go far in life.
