I currently attend WCU as a first time student. I, too, completed all the required pre reqs not including their classes that have to be taken there (FYS, critical thinking, patho, GE capstone, cultural pluralism ) and its 17,000 a term and there's 2 terms a semester and 2 semester in a 10 month time frame what they consider a year. So for me I start this month and graduate in 2020 if I take all their required classes including the nursing core.
So the average is 100,000 that's NOT including grants, financial aid, scholarships
, etc. HOWEVER, the average DEBT for that school is only 43,000$ and 92% of people who attend WCU have to borrow money. (This was given In an info session packet).
Full time for them is only 3 classes per term. You cannot over load the first term but you can after that and only for pre reqs you cannot overload for any nursing core.
The first schedule you get is the times they pick for you. After that you are able to change and pick your time however in nursing there might be a time where dates and times changes the night before. So be prepared for that. If you knock out all the required pre reqs you will be there for 2 years.
