So what really cut down the cost was taking all my pre requisites at a community college before transferring. At WCU the cost goes by semester, and I believe its around 17,000 a semester to go there. a semester contains 2 quarters and the first 6 quarters are all pre requisite classes you can take outside of WCU so if you take them before hand you will save around $35,000. Another thing was my FASFA, I get full cal grant and pel grant which awarded me $9500 a year and since I have to go there for 2 years it gave me another $19,000 towards tuition. Last but not least was my HESI score and GPA. The university offers scholarships
sometimes for selected amount of students depending on academic standing personally, mine was $20,000 scholarship
per year as long as I keep my GPA good. My HESI score was a 85% and my GPA is a 3.88.
Price tag on school: $136,000
pre requisite courses: -$35,000
FASFA & grants: - $19,000
WCU scholarship: -$20,000 per year = 40,000 total scholarship
total tuition= $42,000.
I hope this helps
talk to your advisor and try to find the most affordable way possible. From what I have heard this school is worth every penny.
