  • (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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
Neumont is a great school if you want to get your foot in the door of the Computer Industry, the last year is spent working for actual companies and many students receive job offers from those companies if they preform well. The job placement rate is close to 100% if you graduate with average starting salary around 50k. They teach you in a way that will help you go straight into the industry without a lot of re-training by the company you end up working for.

it is a geek central, geek style, and geek community school. located in the center of everything. you never have to go far from school for anything and everyone more or less understands you.
samantha from mckinney, tx
Neumont focuses it's attention on Software development and those who interact with Software developers. It has a fast paced project oriented program that is designed to not just give you the theoretical knowledge that you would get from most schools but practical experience as well. The rigorous program Neumont offers ensures the work quality of the professionals that they put out.
Bronze from South Jordan, UT
The size of the University is to the point where Faculty and your fellow students are nearly always on hand to talk on a one-on-one basis on any subject, academic or otherwise. The instruction environment focuses on you, the student, taking charge of your own education and learning not just the material, but how to continue to learn in a fast-paced, rapidly improving industry. At Neumont, one simply does not earn a degree, but rather begins to build a career.
Alex from Las Vegas, NV
Neumont has a well-defined community. Has the goal of getting you a job after graduation. And has some of the best teachers in the state.
