    Missouri Western is very cheap but the quality of education and prestige of the degree is not the highest.

    The cost of attendance is low, so you really get a lot out of your experience for what you're paying for. The small class sizes and personal attention you get can rival those you could get at smaller or private institutions.

    Missouri Western may be a pretty penny to some, but the opportunities are there for a person to reduce the price of college if they apply and are willing to work hard.
