    For the cost, it is a great school. Same credits as taking classes in UW-Madison, but cheaper! Gets more expensive if you have to find a place to live on your own.

    Depends on how well you thought threw you college plan. If your going into a specific program don't start here and transfer, you will get behind on classes and it may just cost you extra money in the end. But if you are unsure of a major or know you major this is a good place to start and then transfer into a four year university. A semester here is much cheaper than a semester at many other universities.

    It is very cheap tuition, a great start if you are unsure of what you would like to major in, or would like to complete your generals at a cheap rate.

    I hold every penny near and dear to my heart so paying roughly $2,500 in tuition and fees is annoying yet fairly cheap considering other colleges. It's a little annoying how you have to pay another $100 enrollment fee each semester and even more bothersome when they take more money out for other expenses. Then you of course have to find a way to come up with textbook money. Luckily the bookstore on campus will match the price of the book if you find it online cheaper and give an additional 10% off which is always nice.
