  • (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

3.33 Average Rating
At first, I was a little insecure about going to a community college, but what I have discovered is that it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. It is a medium-sized, comfy community college with many fun and active people. They also transfer any credits to major colleges in Texas for people looking to receive a Bachelor's degree (which I will be doing after receiving my Associates Degree in RN.)

Temple College makes it easy for us students to find our way to our classes, meaning they give us maps and once you find what one building is you are certain to find which way you are going. We just made improvements in the parking lots and it looks very nice and it make it easier to get to your classes, as long as your their about 20 minutes before class starts. The staff are outstanding, and they look at you for who you are and not what you look like and that is greatly appreciated.
