    Chick-fil-A Razorback Road has a student special every Tuesday where you can buy a large number 1 meal for $4! Taco bell offers students discounts, as do a number of other places! Keep track of your student ID, it comes in handy!

    This college is not super cheap, however when compared with other SEC schools, it is one of the most reasonable options. With the quality of education and all of the free events hosted by the university, all of the money paid is put to very good use and it is definitely reciprocated back to the students.

    Awesome choice for in-state students and people who live in NWA because you can live at home and don't have to pay for dorms; just tuition costs! VERY expensive for out-of-state students and the prices for international students are even more of a major expense. With general scholarships and state of Arkansas scholarships, a person who is from Arkansas can get a lot of money and could get tuition for cheaper than any other college in-state or out-of-state for that matter.A lot of out-of-state students get a type of price break but with out-of-state tuition thousands more than in-state, they still have to pay almost twice what in-state students pay.

    It's decent, I'm an out of state student so I pay a lot of money due to the OOS costs, regardless I do not regret even for a second my time at the university

    Tuition is very expensive, considering they charge a mandatory health and transit fee, although I am military and cannot go to Pat Walker, and don't ride the buses anywhere. The knowledge I obtained is top notch, and for most professors, only the students that really want to learn, will learn.
