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.

What Students Are Saying

3.04 Average Rating
SIPI is a tribal college. SIPI is a great community to learn in. Small student population is a plus because then there is a higher student to teacher ratio. Smaller classes mean more time for the students. And also there are tons of way to get involved in what you are interested in. The laboratories in the science department rival those in the bigger Universities in NM and I have access to them when ever I need, I just ask the staff. The staff especially those in the Engineering Department are eager to help with any needs and are very encouraging.

It's a small school but I get a lot of help with homework. It's a great location for all students. The school has a dorm for both boys and girls.
