    It's $35.000 for out of state students and it is really not worth it. At the beginning of the semester I was worried I was going to get a D or F in biology even though I was studying all the time. I discussed with my professor and she told me to retake the class for an extra $3,000. This really iiritated me because I study all the time, but the tests are weighted 75% and the clickers and quizzes are the other 25% and they're bother graded grades. Look into other options if money is an issue and you can't really get scholoarships or grants.

    WVU offers so many opportunities to their students, as well as making each student a priority despite the large class sizes.

    Honestly, if you're from West Virginia, this is a great school for a low price. Even as an out-of-state student, I think West Virginia provides a university that is much cheaper for out-of-staters. While it is still expensive, I really think it's worth it because they offer so much for you to go there, and I've been learning a large amount of things in just a short time of going there so far.
