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

Good teachers and they care about you and help you when you need it. You get a lot of one-on-one time with the teachers. All staff employees are nice and treat you the same way as you treat them.

Taft College is a great way to finish or start an associates degree. It is perfect for students who need night courses or online courses. There are no pesky fees on parking and such.
