    More affordable than most institutions especially if you live in state. If you do live in state tuition is under $20,000.

    I really think that MCLA is worth the money. It is a cheap school and all of the money you do spend goes to good use. It is a really great community and a really great place to learn. There is always something to do and there are tons of really great opportunities every year like a spring concert, different club trips and other really great activities that our student activities counsel puts on.
