a current student here
As we all know, students are finding it very challenging to afford college and those who are able to attend are finishing college with an outrageous amount of debt. One of the deciding factors for me as to where to attend college was tuition. I chose UW - Tacoma because tuition for Washington State residents is currently about $12,000 per year, so $4,000 per quarter. The affordability of UW - Tacoma combined with degree's such as Nursing, Social Welfare, Accounting, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, and Psychology had me sold.
Not only is it one of the most affordable schools in Washington State, but it has an awesome financial aid office who will do the best they can to help you financially. I have been extremely impressed at how quick and easy it is to meet with a financial aid employee when needed.
