    College of DuPage is definitely a bang for your buck college. I've only paid $5,000 for over the past 3 years as a full student!! If i would have went to a University i would have been close to the $80,000.

    The value of education at the College of DuPage is good compared to most universities. The challenge may be that for many students, it is not the final stop. It does not offer Bachelors or higher level degrees.

    I was able to get an incredible first year of education for around $4500 as opposed to the $20,000 I would have spent for my first year at Columbia College in Chicago. I can't even imagine some of the other differences in price for other universities. The amount of classes available with a high quality education for such a low price is amazing.
