    Once upon a time, I might have given this a five star rating, but the way tuition has climbed, it's not that much cheaper to go here living by yourself than it is to live on campus at one of the PASSHE schools (Slippery Rock, Cal U, Shippensburg), at which you'll get a better value and a better student life experience. I would still recommend this as a good starting place, and it is hard to beat cost-wise, but if you have the money, I'd pass on this one.

    I can not complain really because the tuition is so cheap and most credits transfer. You can even pick the school you want to transfer too and try to match it so most if not all transfer perfectly

    This school has what may be the cheapest tuition I've seen, only about $2000 a semester for locals, and I think only about $5000 or so for out of state. So far begin halfway through my second semester up there, I've spent around $7000 on books, food, tuition, and gas going to and from school. Almost all classes from here should transfer to other colleges, making WCCC a great place to begin your college career as cheap as possible.
