    Depends on your scholarships. There are quite a few hidden fees as well so be prepared for that.

    Briar Cliff seems pretty expensive at times but there are many scholarships available to help make it afford able. You get an iPad, access to computer labs and paper and comfortable heating and water and cleaning services in the halls.
