    The quality of education here is definitely worth every penny. It's very affordable and I won't have to take out any loans. I've gotten a few scholarships but no financial aid.

    If you are looking for easy easy easy this is the college for you, but I don't believe it is worth what i paid for since I am not getting the help I need in class.

    North Central's tuition costs are fairly low, even a little lower than other community colleges that I've checked into.

    The average cost per semester isn't bad. It's a good place to start to get the basic classes out of the way without paying exorbatant tuition rates. They offer satellite degrees from other universities and make the transfer process easy.

    Everyone said oh I dont want to go to some community college I want the real expierence well guess what? Community college is just the same. I love it here, I have saved double of what some friends of mine at their 4 year university have saved. Getting the pre-reqs done is a breeze and compared to the university for the same're paying just as much. Ive made good friends and met with some awesome advisors. I wouldnt trade my expierence for anything. Good school and great education.
