  • (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.

What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
This school has an amazing student/professor ratio. The small classes allow for intimate interaction and allow each class to be taught in a way that is best for the particular group. Most professors are easily accessible and are willing to help you in anyway possible, jobs, grad school or even just making it through the semester.
Lyndsi from Riceville, TN
You should enroll if you have the means of paying for your studies completely because the school is a wise investment. If you don't have the money, then you will consider transferring, without doubt. TWC is not very keen on giving scholarships and they are generally not significant. On the other hand, if you play sports and you're good at what you do, then you're in good hands.
