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.

Stockton University is a mid sized public school in a rural setting, despite being just 10 minutes away from Atlantic City. There's a variety of bachelor's and master's degree programs available, all at an affordable price. Additionally, there's always something to do whether it's events, clubs, sports, games, or even their many study abroad programs.

Stockton is a welcoming environment in which students can thrive in not only their academics but their extracurricular activities. There are numerous options of things to do on this beautiful campus. It is a wonderful environment for all of us who attended Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, soon to be University.

Stockton University is a small university that is rapidly expanding. The average class size is smaller than most large schools, but the academic curricula are competitive with most other state schools. Ideal for both commuters and residents, Stockton is both affordable and distinctive.

Stockton was an amazing experience for my undergraduate education. The school is located in the middle of the New Jersey Pine Barrens and offers a campus that reflects the institution's dedication to environmental preservation. An ever-expanding list of majors, minors, athletics, clubs, and activities keeps this liberal university interesting and relevant amongst the competition with NJ's other state schools.
