  • (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.

What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
Wayland Baptist University is a school where the students are not faces in a crowd. The professors make it their goal to see you walk that stage with a degree in your hand. I have never felt this cared for at a school, and I can not imagine a better place to go for education.
Thomas from Lubbock, TX
Wayland is a great school that has a lot to offer. The staff really cares about the students and they want to see us succeed. The transition from high school to college was much easier than I expected and that is primarily because of the staff and their willingness to help.
