  • + 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

3.79 Average Rating
It is basically a giant family in which I love everyone there. I've learned a lot because they retaught me how to study and teachers are more available since it's a small college and there aren't 400 people classes. I have had a great college experience thus far because i am a student who learns best in small places and Newberry College is the perfect place for that.

I love this college, it is in a small, quiet, quaint town. The school offers beautiful historic building and amazing scenery. The students here are great and are there to learn, they do not disrupt class like you have at most colleges.
