    UNCC is one of the cheapest state universities and it offers a great education for those who are ready to challenge themselves. It does require students to take their own initiative (largely because of its size), but a successful student will have no problem taking advantage of the many opportunities it has to offer.

    For in state students the tuition is very cheap and out of state students from the north have said that it is about the same price as colleges in their state. The room and board is a little pricey but there are a ton of apartments right next to campus so a lot of people choose that route after their first year.

    Tuition, both instate and out of state, is relatively low when compared to universities of its caliber. It is ranked third in the top colleges in the UNC system, only behind NC State and Chapel Hill. It is an ever expanding college, expected to enroll 35000 students by 2020, while Chapel Hill is projected to enroll 33000 by the same time. My major is engineering, and upon discussing preferred majors from different engineering firms around North Carolina, the only engineering degrees most consider come from UNCC or NC State. All others get thrown out. The education at Charlotte is of high quality and a low cost and low hype.

    I'm sorry, but UNCC can be pretty expensive sometimes, especially for out-of-state students. Outtakes is kind of expensive, but it does have necessities for on-campus living.
