    I'm not looking to go to college yet, I'm still in highschool. But I was just fishing around prices, so when I do go, I won't have debt!
    I was looking at UNOH.edu and it says 1100$ per course... and "High performance motorsports" is a 2 year program, but I can't see it only being 1100$ for the course. Can someone solve this riddle?

    course
    tution

    NOTE:This is not the college, or the course I will be taking, I am just LOOKING around!

    A course is generally 3 credit hours...
    there are 102 hours in your course work...
    102 / 3 = is 34 courses
    34 x $1100 per course would be about $37,400 /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    so those courses listed are an idea of the required courses, chances are there are more, like intro classes and advanced, etc.

    Good luck not having a lot of debt... My suggestion is work your ASS of in high school and apply for every scholarship and grant you are eligible for... Trust me... Had I known in high school what I know now (oh look, a cliche!), I'd probably not be living with my parents... and instead of being in the Air National Guard, I'd be doing ROTC at CSU on the government's money...

    It's all working out for me, but if there's one think I wish I would've done different, it's finishing high school and doing damn good at it instead of settling for a GED after a low-C average 2 years...

    My dad had a professional college planner lady help me out when I was applying to school (mostly b.s. but I got some good advice from her). So here is my semi-professional advice for you:

    Like Capman2k said, apply relentlessly for scholarships. There are the most random ones out there (like 'Descendents of Hugonots that want to major in Auto Fab' or whatever) that hardly anyone applies for, so your competition is minimal. Also, even if it's only $100, the little ones add up. I am attending Georgia Tech ( /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif) on 2 scholarships and a book stipend and that takes quite a bit of sting out of the bill.

    Also, don't worry too much about collegic curriculum if you're only a junior. Just do the best you can in high school and worry about your credit hours and classes when you get INTO the college you want to attend.

    Last one. Talk to your high school guidance counselor. Most are dumb (like mine was ) but they do have helpful info on scholarships and setting yourself up to apply for college. As a bonus, if you make friends with them, they may write you a happy letter of recommendation when you apply for school/scholarships!

    Hope this helps. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Okay thanks, I guess I will just hold off for looking. One question though, whats the average price to go to college/university to complete a full course? (including books if there is any) ?

    I was looking at around $18,000 a year at the University of Northern Colorado (out of state) for tuition, books, room, and food...

    around $22,000 at Colorado State University...

    Just go to websites, they usually list their prices... From what I hear, $18k a year for out of state isn't too horribly bad... Just when you only get $15,000 in financial aid, and nothing saved, it gets to be a problem... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    okay. I'll start saving, and keep my eyes open for credits, (or whatever someone called them) so it'll make it easier to get in.

    I graduated in '03. I wanted to go to a school like UTI or Wyotech, but taking to people who actually went there and such, I decided not to. UTI, atleast the campus closest to me, I just heard nothing but bad things about it.

    As for Wyotech, well thats the school I was going to go to, but I started taking classes at the local junior college its probablly one of the best things to happen to me yet. I will be getting my AS degree in automotive technology, which is a little better then what youd get a a trade school , such as UTI, but a helluva lot cheaper. In addition to that I also took the smog classes, (also cheper through the school) and now have my smog license(this probablly doesnt matter to you if your not in CA), and will making great money, to open my own smog station. Since my schools a traning site for GM techs, I also am doing the things to become a GM tech (want to be a service writer for a little bit). I also have some ASE certifications.

    I know thats probablly not what you guys want to do, you want to do the custom stuff. Before I started school at the JC I wanted to go to Wyotech and take the custom suspension class. My goal was to open my own custom suspension shop. After talking to a few people I thought it would be better to get my degree in automotive technology at the junior college (remember you have to do all the same classes at those trade schools), save money, then go to Wyotech.

    I know how you guys feel and you know what you want to do( thats good, like me!) and no ones gonna change you mind, but seriously consider your options, and dont jump into it, like my buddie just did. Theres more general auto jobs out there to make some money, then the "fab" jobs the schools make tell you youll get upon completion.

    Geeze you guys probablly think I sound like you parents now.
