    The costs are cheap and you get some of the best education offered! At first I was skeptical but after a few months of studies I felt like I learned more than some of my friends who attend schools costing up to $40,000 compared to the $8,000 CSUSB. Very worth it!

    Definitely bang for the buck. You get what you put in and it is worth it. San Bernardino is not as bad as people make it seem. The neighborhood is a little rough when you leave the school but San Bernardino is what you make of it. If you make the classes your suppose to take as well as taking some fun classes for yourself your not going to waste your money.

    Tuition is at 2,180 right now for full-time. Other schools are higher so I consider CSUSB to be a great price. Tuition does always increase yearly though.
