    I feel that you get a lot for what you pay for. In addition to great classes and awesome teachers, your student I.D. doubles as monetary system that works at certain locations around town. The Tiger Bucks system is basically a re-loadable card (Your I.D.) that starts with a free $100 on it. once you run out you can put more money on it. Your Tiger Bucks do not subtract from your meal plan!

    The school is not very very expensive compared to Auburn and Alabama, however, since this school was my last minute choice, I have to say I would rather pay my money elsewhere just because of that. Also, like most colleges, some of the staff aren't good at their jobs.

    West Alabama is a very affordable four year university. Tuition is cheap and housing and meal plans are reasonable. The University offers several scholarships to help out as well.
