  • + 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

Definitely everything you would expect from a CUNY college placed in Manhattan. The experience you'll get out of a class is highly dependent on the professor you choose, since they all teach their classes differently but so far I haven't had a bad experience. Although their student services are pretty slow and annoying at times, especially their mail which arrives at your house weeks from when it was first written, it's kind of expected.
Roderick from Long Island City, NY
Baruch College is a well-known accounting school where prospective students from all over the US come for a business degree. The professors here are very helpful with structured lectures and there is a large base of support, including homework help and internship advisement. This is my first year at Baruch College and I love it here.
Aaron from Port Chester, NY
Baruch College is an exciting place to be! Located in the concrete jungle that is Manhattan, it provides an awesome learning and fun college experience for students of many diverse races. In this school are three schools: The ZIcklin School of Business (Top 5 Business schools in NY), Weissman School of Arts and School of Public Affairs where you can surely find a degree program that suits your liking and your lifestyle.
