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

Caramon from Hendersonville, NC
UNCP was not my first choice but I absolutely love it. Pembroke is a very great school that is willing to help you to the best of their abilities. With the small campus and classes, you get so much engagement with the teachers and students and that is what makes the experience of education the best.
