  • + 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

3.65 Average Rating
This is an affordable university with a great atmosphere. I would suggest Texas A&M-Commerce to anyone looking for an affordable, well-rounded college. The professors and staff are very friendly and love to work with the students.
TAMUC Student
Very good school, all professors wish to help you succeed. It is a very small town with mostly commuters however everyone that lives on campus is very pleasant to be with. Is a little frightening to be outside alone at night.
Emily from Commerce, TX
The University is so small, however because of that it's so comfortable. Everyone is just so friendly and the school itself is quite precious. Being that it's an official branch of the Texas A&M family, the academics are amazing as well.
