Hi ! My wife and I are both starting our first semester monday! I'm a new college student and am a little shocked by the price of education! If it were'nt for my GI bill I don't think we could pay for school. I always like to get the "best deal" on something. Is this to high for school? Or am I just to stingy?

No, this is my just my tuition. My wife is going thru LPN. After they figured in GI bill, grants, and loans. I was left with a $1300 credit. My wife on the other hand was left still owing $1900. Luckily they will let us transfer to her balance. I just don't see how anyone else in our classes can pay that. Assuming that the majority will still owe around $2000 after grants and loans. Even if they setup an installment plan that's still $500 a month. The vast majority of the students is married with children.
I was army. I'm undecided on what I want to do after. There's just so, so many options. I think thats one of the things I like most about nursing.
Here's my wife's costs.
One quick question. How many credits are you taking?
Before this semester I was taking full-time 18 credits. Ex: That was 450.00 a credit times 18 = 8100.00 plus lab fees, supplies, books. It came to about 9,000 a semester. I know it is ridiculously insane, but the only other options I had was 3 year waiting lists or go private which I did.
IMHO, I think they are charging you about right, but if you want to make sure you can call around the other schools in your area and ask what thei tuition is and compare.
