    Particularly for the nursing program, you will get an excellent education for the price of a community college. The updated nursing curriculum is geared toward preparation for the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. The faculty is extremely professional and bring a wealth of experience to the table. I expect no trouble in finding a satisfying career upon graduation.

    At the College of DuPage, two full semesters of classes is around $5,000. You know what $5,000 can get you at a university? A dorm room and maybe a meal plan. When you can take so many classes for such a good price, why WOULDN'T you go to College of DuPage? The classes themselves are taught by passionate teachers who truly do care about their student's success. They are always willing to help you out.

    I am on an academic full ride scholarship, therefore the school is definitely a bang for the buck. COD prides themselves on their affordability, especially compared to four year universities.

    CoD is a great school with affordable classes and study abroad programs much more affordable than those of universities. (Think $4,000 compared to $10,000.) Tuition varies on which and how many classes you take, but the classes are set up to help you do your best and to teach you accurate information in whichever field its in.
