    Metro has extremely cheap tuition rates. For a high school student that wants to dual enroll, its only $25 per credit hour. For the average student, it's right around $50 per credit hour. You can literally get an Associate's Degree from them for six thousand dollars or so. That is extremely affordable. When you combine that with excellent teachers, many of which either have several years, if not decades, of experience teaching, it makes a winning combination. Metro also gives each student free access to their academic resource centers, which can you help write a better paper or get a better math grade. These centers offer one-on-one tutoring to each student, plus free printing up to a certain amount for school. Again, that is invaluable to college students. Overall, Metro is really worth every penny you pay; the education is top-notch, the help is wonderful, and the location is convenient.
