Metropolitan Community College is cheap, but invest a little more in your future somewhere else. The professors are dry at best, belligerent and mean-spirited most of the time. The school doesn't give you a voice, and Deans show favoritism routinely.

I attend Metropolitan Community College online. I love that the classes are reasonably priced. Most online schools charge an arm and a leg for an online education. With Metropolitan Community College, I can get the degree I need to pursue a career in my field. Traditionally online courses cost in upwards of 300 per credit hour. Metropolitan Community College costs less than 100 per credit hour. The money saved can really come in handy when trying to make the financial aid money stretch.
