    Upstate is pretty cheap at least to me. I pay about 8,000 something a semester which is much compared to other colleges and thats including room and board, fees, credit hours etc.

    The schools is fairly cheaper than other universities in Spartanburg. It is well accredited also. I'd say if you're looking for a degree in a program that USC- Upstate offers and not looking to go into 6 digits of debt, come here.

    Pretty good. The most affordable place in the upstate if you want to earn a bachelor's degree.
