Out-of-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students not residing in the locality in which they attend school.
Additional Costs
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.

What Students Are Saying

Lawrence Tech is a good University for students who want to have the whole college experience. Their programs consist of many classes to focus towards your degree, but there are other, core courses, that help students get a well-rounded education. Remember: Possible is Everything.
Melvena from Chicago, IL
Lawrence Tech University is what us students call a community. Everyone knows everyone because the campus is so small but that does not mean it is a bad thing. The small campus gives a feel of comfort and opportunities of building stronger relationships.
Jamie from Bronx, NY
This is a great school for those who are passionate about really learning and seeing progress in technological research happen. Many classes are hands on and will require you to fabricate items already in your first year, which allows you to gain experience. The relatively small size of the university student body and campus will also let you make new friends very easily as you will all get to know each other well.
Maximillian from Southfield, MI
From what I've seen so far, they really seem to care about the students. They offer a vast amount of guidance to help you transition. I am pretty impressed and excited about attending in the fall.
Kid from Westland, MI
The school is a great learning environment for me. I work better in smaller settings so the small class sizes are great. I also love that they have an academic achievement center to help me with all of my academic needs.
Kristin from Southfield, MI
Lawrence Technological University is an exceptional educational institution with several colleges that are in high demand. Not only is this university plentiful in its resources, it provides students with a variety of networking options, such as internships. Lawrence Tech is an excellent university that breeds well-rounded leaders.
Angela from Southfield, MI
LTU is a great school that gets the students involved in the designing process from freshman year. They take great pride in their classes and have very well trained professors. Also, It was a relief to find that my professors and classmates became more of a family then just acquaintances.
Katherine from Oak Lawn, IL
So far, LTU has been amazing to me as an individual student; the faculty are very personable and inviting. Thought the tuition is intimidating, I've found that it is well worth its money; putting theory and practice together and making practicality and assertiveness a priority in its students. LTU gives several opportunities for success and progression to its students, anywhere from camps to student bodies for support.
