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.

Monica from Auburn, IN
The University of Saint Francis has an excellent concern for student achievement. Academic advisors keep in contact with students throughout the semester to promote open communication and answer any questions or concerns. The university does a great job of maintaining a high four year retention and graduation rate as well.
