    This school is a fantastic bargain. Anyone with low funds and the ability to commute cheaply to this area should go.

    Like I said to begin with, $89/per credit hour for in-district students. I believe it is $99 but don't quote me on that for out of district rate.

    Students who are, or have faculty members as either parents or spouses, can attend for free (tuition), and this school is also listed as the cheapest tuition in Missouri. Other fees aren't too over the top, usually just for studio or lab fees for the appropriate classes. Many teachers are also perfectly fine with older editions of textbooks, although the bookstore carries only the newest editions.

    Definitely worth the money spent on classes, tuition at other colleges are outrageous and it's nice to have a college close by that is well rounded.

    I only had to pay for books while at ECC because of the A+ Program, but the tuition is much more affordable here than other schools.
