  • (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)

What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
An amazing school with small class room sizes. Helpful teachers that would go the extra mile to help you pass. Many degree options to choose from.
Rico from Van Nuys, CA
The University of Great Falls, Montana, has great science, education, psychology, and criminal justice programs. This school is also very small, capping class sizes at 20 people, yet it still has very many successful clubs and sports programs. Even though this school is so small, it is still A.P.A. certified, so i would give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
