    Things at the school can get expensive, especially books. Shop around for them, check online. Renting it sometimes cheaper but buying can be too. Looking into both options can help you a lot in the book ordering process, even look into e-books.

    WCSU is so great for the cost! Since it's a state-school as a CT resident I got a good amount of financial aid that I was very thankful for! You can get a great education here and leave with same degree as another student going to private school for much, much, much less debt.

    Westconn is fairly cheaper than schools such as Uconn and Central. You get close to the same education level but not challenged enough. If you live in Connecticut coming here defiantly saves you money as apposed to going to a bigger out of state school. If you don't want to go to a community college and still save money it's your best bet
