  • + 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

3.85 Average Rating
Stephens College is the perfect fit for any young girl pursuing a career in almost any aspect of art. It has been very beneficial to me as a Graphic Design and Film Major. The students and staff can be considered as one large family, and the atmosphere is one of the most welcoming I have ever seen.
Meredith from Leawood, KS
Stephens College is a great institution. With only about 1,000 students, all female, they prepare women for real world day to day experiences with their courses and degree requirements. Stephens' small class size make it easier for each student to get one on one attention to succeed if needed.
