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.

This school is so helpful and open to doing anything they can to help the students to succeed. The classes are small so the professors can interact with each student more. And the social scene is great!
Cassidy from Bountiful, UT
Westminster is a great small liberal arts school. The campus is small, well manicured and classes are easily accesible. Great option if the U and BYU are not in your consideration.
