Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (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.

Attending the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor is greatest decision I have ever made. Everyone is nice and thoughtful, the professors actually care about you, plus a brand new football stadium makes it even better. My life has been so much better since I've started here at UMHB.
Ashli from Houston, TX
I have attended this college 2 years to date, and I love it! The campus is small enough where you don't feel lost or out of place, but big enough to where you still feel like you are part of an exclusive community. The staff on campus (teachers, faculty, etc.) are so friendly, and when accepted, I received LOTS of financial aid.
