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.

What Students Are Saying

3.04 Average Rating
Wharton County Junior College is the college that I want to attend for my Nursing. At the first day of the class I saw that I really choose the right college for Nursing. I feel that all instructors of the college are working very hard for the success of their students.
Khyati from Wharton, TX
this junior college is a wonderful experience for students who are just coming from high school or people who are wishing to continue there education. the environment gives you a feel of being in a main college campus classroom, but the ability to talk to the teacher one on one if you are struggling. they also offer wonderful services to help tutor students who are struggling with several classes free of cost, providing an excellent service of help if a student needs it.
Amanda from Sugar Land, TX
It's a small school with small class rooms. It's easy to get to know professors and other classmates. Since it is a junior college there are many locations which is convenient for those who do not live near it's main campus.
