  • + 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

3.81 Average Rating
Stetson university is an amazingly calm campus. It also has a comfy feel too it. I took a tour and fell in love with the place.
Sebastian from Deltona, FL
Stetson is an amazing university that allows the students to really get one on one with professors (really it isn't just a joke). The campus is beautiful, the food is good, and the people are kind (minus that 2% every school has). Definitely a good choice if you are looking for a small school.
Kayla from Jacksonville, NC
This is a small private institution located in DeLand, Florida. It is a very well organized and fun school to attend. The academic standards are set very high and it is an all around great place to be.
Keegan from Wesley Chapel, FL
Stetson is small but does BIG things for the community.
Stetson dares you to be significant; it's not just a stupid slogan.
Stetson offers you the freedom and support that no other school can.
