    There are many scholar ships options that make school here very affordable. It's a great cost for classes although learning accessories:bluebooks,books for reading in a class, etc. Can sometimes get pricy.

    It's a little expensive and seems like tuition is always rising but I think if you pick a good major, the cost should be worth it. Grants and scholarships do help out but a lot do take out some loans.

    If you grades and test scores are good they will literally throw money at you. They are hoping to grow as a school show for the next few years they will do anything to get you to attend. Don't miss this opportunity.

    If you are in state its worth it. Out of state may be a little pricey but its definitely one of the prettiest campuses in the world.

    Even if Alabama is not one of the best schools academically, they make sure you have great opportunities after college. The staff really cares what happens to you after college and they help anyway you can. I think I am getting a bang for my buck. Alabama has so many ways to get involved and ways to make you successful you just have to be willing to work for them. Nothing is worth having if it is given to you anyways.
