  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
UMR is innovated with a medical based foundation for the classrooms. The courses all integrate health science into them for a more focused learning environment. Lots of opportunity and help is available.
KaoLee Xiong
The University of Minnesota-Rochester (UMR) is the perfect campus for a student that is positive that he/she wants to pursue a degree in health sciences, at a small campus. I believe that UMR is better than a typical college campus, because the students can go directly to their professors and ask questions at a few different locations on the small campus, the kind of interaction we have with the professors at UMR isn't like most colleges in the United States. Also, there's a sky-way that connects the school apartment to the rest of the campus, so if you live at 318 Commons, you don't have to walk in various, unsuitable weather conditions.
Rachel from Lakefield, MN
The opportunities given to students who have an interest in the health field are amazing! The class size is small which will lead to smaller classroom sizes. Overall, the university is amazing!
