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.

Weber State is fantastic! The professors teach the classes, rather than adjunct professors or graduate students.The professors are knowledgeable and down to earth, they schedule times to readily be able to meet with students who are in need of additional mentoring or assistance.

I love Weber State!!! The teachers are extremely caring and are willing to help you with anything in order to help you succeed. I was extremely worried about attending my first year of college, but from the moment I got there I have felt excited about continuing my education at this university.
