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.

Nursing school is great. For a state school there is a lot of stuff that could be much better! Cashiers office messed up my bill for the semester and thought it was acceptable to charge me over $800 a month into the semester!
UMSL is a very positive environment with very helpful and friendly people. UMSL's science research facilities are one of the top ten in the country. UMSL has ratios of teachers to students at a 1 to 23, in other words, the average class is 23 students.
