    Buying books at the school will cost a ton so be smart and write down all of the ISBN numbers which can be found on the back or front of your textbooks and its the number that starts with 978 on the barcode looking part. Search for them online and you will have all that money to SAVE. This university is really half the cost of the main campus and about a fourth of the cost of a university out of the city but it is worth saving the money if you can find your major at UHD and graduate or stay here for a couple years until you transfer.

    Every university has a writing center, if you love writing but not in English literature major, this could be best deal for you. As you grow up in the university, your writing skills also improved, and it can be a big thing to put on your resume.

    Buy your books online instead at the bookstore on campus. Will save tons of money. Then sale your book online as well. Renting is always a buck saver as well.

    Transportation to the school is great, the metro rail station is right in front of the school so is convenient for some students. There is also a police academy within the university for those pursuing a criminal justice degree.
