Student Body

Many students say that a college’s size, location and campus “personality” were major factors in their final choice. A college’s student body is an important part of that equation. Ask yourself these questions: Are you interested in being part of a diverse community with people from many different backgrounds? Do you want to be around students who are interested in sports, studying, politics or something else?

Paying

There are many factors that go into determining the cost of college. The average annual cost is what a student pays on average to cover expenses (e.g. tuition, living expenses, etc.) minus any grants and scholarships received. Actual cost will depend on many factors including financial need, grade point average, test scores, etc. When considering the total cost of college, don't forget to consider the various financial aid programs that the State of Tennessee offers to Tennessee students.
