    As a resident of Delaware, I am a recipient of the in-state tuition, so I am not fully informed enough to make a decision on how much of a "bang for your buck" you'd get as an out-of-state student. However, for the in-state students, it definitely feels like the tuition and costs are what is to be expected. College is going to be insanely expensive no matter where you go, which is why scholarships and financial aid are so important. However, knowing that it's going to cost a great deal of money, the University of Delaware makes sure that you're getting your money's worth.

    Out of state tuition is expensive. Apply for scholarships and explore your options. If you want to go here badly enough, you'll find a way and make it happen. This is a great school, no doubt, but yes, it is expensive.
