  • + 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.

TMC is a great small environment that caters to a deep understanding of your intended educational field. Small classes and personal time with professors allows students to not only grasp a subject but become versed in it's real-world application. TMC is the perfect place for friendship, encouragement, and learning.

The campus is very small, about 1200 students, so you always recognize faces which is really nice. Everyone is super friendly; from the students, to the professors, to even the janitors. It feels very at home because everyone gives you such a warm welcome.
