Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(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.

Southern Utah University is a great school. All the academic advisers are very helpful and will help you register for classes. Campus is very small and it's very easy to get to classes.
Emily from Lehi, UT
suu is an incredible school for a great value! you receive the education and opportunities that usually come from a larger school but with smaller class sizes and more individual attention from your professors. suu works very hard to make sure each student has the opportunity to succeed in their academics by creating great professor office hours, learning labs, and an atmosphere that is not only fun, but also very conducive to learning.
