  • + 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)

Monmouth was the best experience of my life. I received a very well-rounded education and was involved in several organizations. I made long-lasting friendships and often reminisce about many experiences had on and off campus during my time there.
