You definitely get what you pay for, but with a hefty price. It is financially expensive, but it is so worth it. The scholarships are definitely possible, and on campus work study or cash jobs are utilized by many of the students (and they are great). What many of the students do is do the Gen Eds at a community college first, then come to Master's to save a lot of money. Make sure that the classes you are taking transfer though, otherwise you might waste money you thought you were saving! The online department at Master's offers a lot of these online, and there is an opportunity for dual enrollment for high school students so that they may get a step ahead while fulfilling their graduation requirements. If God wants you at Master's, He will get you there.
