  • (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

3.55 Average Rating
This college is really worth attending due to its; affordable tuition, small class sizes, lunch, and community. The tuition is ridiculously affordable, therefore proves that the saying of college is too expensive to be false. Moreover, Financial Aid and Scholarships can be used to pay off your tuition.
