  • + 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

3.85 Average Rating
Big school, but feels like a small town. You know your classmates and teacher, and they know (and care) about you. A&M also has the the best animation graduate program outside of a trade school.
