    Cottey is relatively cheap for all the stuff that is part of the tuition. It is most definitely worth it, and the college offers a ton of scholarships.

    Cottey is funded by the PEO Sisterhood, and offer a generous amount of state scholarships depending on the state. This can range from a few thousand dollars to full tuition. Depending on your high school GPA, you are eligable for anywhere from four to ten thousand dollars a semester. Cottey costs about 25,000 a year.

    The cost for tuition is the same for residents and out-of-state students and the most I had to pay out of pocket is about $2,000. There are scholarships available through the college and through the PEO organization that the college works with. There are a lot ways to cover the costs so you don't end up paying a lot on your own. There is no meal plan like the other colleges you apply to because at Cottey the meals are included in the tuition. You get a lot out of what you pay for, in many ways. You will save a lot too, especially if you are out of state.
