  • + 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)

3.93 Average Rating
i am looking into morehead. since they have a campus relatively close to home and they charge in-state tuition for my area, they are by best choice right now after i get my associate's degree and will be moving on to a bachelor's degree in computer science. i am seriously considering attending a meeting in the future.

Morehead States faculty are very friendly, and most of the professor will help you as much as they can. If you want to go to a University that isn't overly expensive MSU is your best bet! MSU's campus is fairly small but campus life is amazing!
