    300 dollars per credit is not that bad for an international student who would like to study at a US Community College. Professors are top of the line and there are plenty of college resources at your disposal.

    The tuition for LaGuardia is affordable and there are alot of financial aid options and scholarships. There is alot of exposure to opportunities outside of the collge, the city and even the country with study abroad. Whether paying out of pocket or receiving financial assistance you will get the most out of your college expereince.

    Great school for those transitioning back into college or who work or have family obligations. The semester is divided into two sections and both count towards your pell for the semester so you can divide a full time schedule if you need to. Great on campus resources, but you have to look for them.

    You're paying for a community college in Long Island City. It is by far not the worst school out there, but they never did anything to really stand out either. As I said earlier, it is the ideal place to earn you 60 credits and transfer to another CUNY school. And it is cheaper than going to Hunter, for example. So in that case, I would say you get a lot for your dollar.

    Definitely a bang for your buck situation but it depends on what you are really looking for.
