  • + 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)

Abril from Riverside, CA
I transferred from a Cal State to La Verne, it was the best decision I could have made. The professors are extremely helpful, and the labs are very interesting. I can assure you, you will learn a lot here.
