    Its very affordable, and financial aid usually cover all of the cost plus you get money back. And for those who don't get financial aid, they have a bunch of loans you can get with very little interest rate, so loans you don't have to pay back until you graduate.

    if you are not dorming. you're really not paying for anything but the books. my books this semester were 250 and that's all that i took out of my pockets since the school year started if you are dorming, most likely you're gonna have to take out a loan because financial does not cover even 300 of your dorm rent

    The most economically-friendly school in the nation. Half the tuition (at least) of surrounding private institutions. In the most prime location.
