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. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

North Georgia is located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Appalachian mountains and the surrounding area is beautiful year round. The campus is small enough to easily walk to all of your classes but big enough that you can meet amazing new people each day. There are truly so many activities in the area to fit every personality type from rock climbing and white water rafting, to shopping and eating at restaurants that serve authentic southern comfort food.
