    I'm paying $21,000 a year and I think that is way too high. I feel as though I'm at a community college in a different state and just living on campus of that community college. I'm considering transferring back home for spring semester to save money. As much as i love it here it's not worth the cost.

    For what you are paying at PSC the tuition is very affordable. The dorms are cheap as well. However, if you stay in University Place it is more expensive than the other dorms. Books are expensive through the bookstore, so try to find them online or off past students.

    One of the main reason why i picked Potomac State College is because it's not very expensive. It was definitely affordable since i was getting myself through college. As well as the school being helpful with scholarships and grants.

    The best scholarship to apply for this campus is the Promise Scholarship. If you meet the ACT requirements your college tuition is paid for one year. So long as you meet the grade and credit requirements that scholarship continues to pay your tuition year after year.
