    The college is slightly expensive but its every penny worth it. One of the best college for your return on investments. You will not regret it.

    Kettering is a phenomenal deal, but they charge us more than 30% the average undergraduate cost to attend a normal university, to only be in school for 6 months of the year. They do that to both sections, and still hike tuition 1k per year for each incoming class (that rate is locked in though).

    Kettering's tuition is not cheap, but when you factor in the 6 months spent working in a great paying engineering job with irreplaceable experience it is an incredible value.

    Well obviously Kettering is pretty darn expensive. But if you know you want to go to Kettering while in high school, get involved in robotics and keep your grades high and you will get a lot of money in scholarships! If you are a girl do LITE. You basically get most of your college paid for that way. Also what is nice is you usually make around $12,000 (at least) and up each year through co-op. So the sticker price seems crazy, but it's really not that bad.

    You get what you pay for at Kettering. No school is perfect, but if you give it your best, Kettering will give you the best right back. The nice part about a small private school is that you get to know people pretty quickly and you aren't just a number. Plus they guarantee your tuition. Your classes are taught by actual teachers and they are willing and ready to help you.
