    The out-of-state tuition is pretty pricey, but also comparable to other schools. In-state tuition is pretty reasonable, and pretty easy to pay if you have financial aid to help you out. Be sure to apply for all the scholarships you can, it really does help out.

    Being an out of state student I have had to pay quite a lot more that attending an in-state school. However, due to my unique intended major, going out of state was necessary. I feel that the education I will receive at UNCW, although it is not considered an Ivy League school, will be better and more cost effective.

    Pretty expensive for everything actually. Parking is ridiculous here too, and they are pretty strict about sticking to your assigned lot unless you have another parking sticker for one (they like to give out parking tickets....a lot).

    I was able to finish an entire years worth of credits simply from AP classes and duel enrollment at my local community college in high school! This has put me much farther ahead than most of the other freshman- and will ultimately save me a lot of money on tuition, books, and other fees.
