    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.

    The dorms and meal plans definitely rip you off and take your money. Oh and there's a $36 transit fee and $100 health fee but I never ride the bus and when I go to the health center they charge me $60-$100 for just writing me a dang prescription. For the dorms the cheapest you'll pay is $5,5000 and the meal plan I have is $1700 a SEMESTER. Blessed to be able to move out into an apartment next year.
