    For in state students, it is very fairly priced. If you look for enough scholarships the whole thing will be paid for. Right now in state is about $18,000 and out of state is around $35,000.

    average in state tuition for Towson is around 23,000. Out of state tuition is around 34,000. It's a shame we have to pay so much to further our education.

    As a public University Towson definitely has a lot of Bang for the Buck If you are an in state student it just gets amplified that much. Probably one of the cheapest out of state tuition schools around, it is a great investment.

    As a Maryland resident, it was an easy decision coming to Towson, it being a state university. Towson also makes an effort to accommodate financial need. I'll learn what I need to here and I will be proud to call myself a Towson alumni when I graduate.
