    For the most part, Leeward is a cheap school to attend. The only downside is how overpriced the books are at the bookstore.

    The tuition is much cheaper than going to a university. Get your first 2 years of schooling down at LCC then transfer to the University to finish your BA. It will save you thousands of dollars. If you fail the math portion of the Compass testing they have an online training program called edReady which will help you to get skilled up and then at the completion of the program you get a waiver to retake the test at no cost. If you are able to pass the Compass test without having to take the remedial math classes you can save $400-$800.

    The tuition at LCC is very decent, but when you have a full time student like me who has to work three jobs just to raise enough money for each semester, can tire that person out. I could really use some help because working three jobs is so not cool. I've had to drop out one year just so i could raise money, then started to falter on my studies again because i've been working to much, and so this time around, I really just want to focus on school but still be able to work to make income for myself to provide for school. But I don't want to be working three jobs and be a full time student. I'm still young, and It's sad to know that my life only consists of school and work.

    For the education that's offered, definitely. Many great professors that go above and beyond, and much opportunity to get involved in community or school efforts.

    Leeward Community College is a bang for your buck. My tuition has a full time student with four classes is around $1,300. I think it is worth it because of the great staff and all the available resources on campus.
