    PV 's tuition is very cheap, and living expenses are salon inexpensive, if you're a planned transfer-student PV is a great institution to get your basics out of the way

    As far as in-state tuition, this is one of the highest quality institutions for the cost. The overall cost of living is very low (roughly $450-650/month), and 96% of the schools population is on some for of financial aid (scholarship, loans, or grants). It could be relatively easy to earn 30 hours over two semesters and not pay more than $15,000 (which includes tuition, fees, books, and room and board), which by today's standards is very cheap.

    I'm from L.A., this school is very cheap to attend, and I just prefer Texas or L.A. schools and day. The south had a feeling that you dont get in the inner city. Definitely worth the experience.
