    With WUE locked in for four years this school is hardly more expensive than going in-state back at home. Besides all the BS fees they add on, I feel like I am getting a great education for my money.

    Although the cost of textbooks and labs can be extremely high, there are places around campus that allow one to simply rent a book for a lower price, buy a book and then sell it back, or buy it for a cheaper price. Tuition is expensive but there are plenty of offers for financial aid and scholarships throughout the year, so much that one can tell UNR really cares about the success and overall happiness of their students.

    Really cheap school especially if you are in state. Even for out of state students it is pretty cheap, my roommate is from California and he pays less at UNR than he would at any university in Califiornia

    Being from the state of Nevada, my tuition is very low. Even for students from out of state it is still much more affordable than most top-tier universities! UNR is a Tier 1 school, which on average cost about $40,000/yr. My in-state tuition is only about $7,000/yr! With all of the resources the school has to offer and the quality of the professors, I would definitely say this school is worth the money.
