    If you're unable to get into a funded, public program (Univeristy or State School), it's over a $1,000 a credit hour. Total program tuition is near 140 credit hours and it will increase over time, so each year tuition is an estimate. You can do the math. There are a few loan repayment programs but since it is not APA accredited, those programs are too few and their application process should be reviewed before making a commitment here.

    There are many different places you could go to here in the city to have fun on the cheap. There are many cheap, delicious restaurants up and down Geary Street, many different theaters to go to for matinee showings, and my personal favorite, 15 dollar tickets for the San Francisco Symphony.

    Although tuition is high at University of San Francisco, there are many benefits to attending a private institution. At University of San Francisco, you are assured attention from your professors and academic advisors. At the end of every semester, students must meet with academic advisors in order to plan what classes to take the next semester. These advising appointments are intended to keep track of your progress so far and the classes you need in order to fulfill graduation requirements. Also, considering the city that you will be in the next four years, I would consider USF to be worth the buck. There is no other time to celebrate youth than during your college years รข?? what other city would give you the same big city feel but only within 7x7 miles.

    All private schools are very expensive, but if you are seeking a more personal education, then a school like USF is right for you.
