A degree from a small liberal-arts college can be pricey.

Westminster College of Fulton, Mo., which is opening a branch in Mesa in the next year, can cost more than $15,000 annually. That compares with $2,280 a year for a full schedule at Mesa Community College.

So, four of the liberal-arts colleges that are in the process of opening branch campuses in Mesa have announced that they will each offer two full-tuition scholarships to local students at the start of the next school year.
