    An extremely inexpensive not for profit college that offers a fully online and campus bachelors programs. The college stands out as a pearl among a sea of non-profit and for profit institutions that desire to get a student's dollars. The school is significantly less than some of the colleges in my own state even with financial aid.

    Fort Hays is very economical. It's got a tech school price for a 4-year-degree. Highly recommended as far as price goes.
