    I keep being told it's one of the most affordable universities in Wisconsin- it's roughly $14,500 a year with books. For sake of education, there's no way for me to know, because I haven't been offered a degree-required career yet, obviously. There are good and bad professors you will and won't get along with everywhere. What matters is the name of the school you went to, when you look for a job. Future employers won't ask about that one professor or class. They'll just understand you went to Whitewater, a business school, with a hard-earned business school accreditation. For buck, they're great, or so I'm told, as I hardly know the bill of other universities in the state. For bang? Well, I'll have to see when I graduate.

    Whitewater is a very reasonable priced school! It is just around 14,000$ a year and what is really nieces is you get all your books included in your tuition!

    It looks like you definitely get your money's worth at this school. However, if you're only planning on doing general education I suggest going to a two year college and transferring in.

    I'm an out of state student. UW-Whitewater gives me a higher quality academics, more meal options, and lots of student bonuses when it comes to events for less than it would cost me to attend a four year school in my home state.
