There are community colleges that generally you would attend for two years. That would essentially be the cost effective way to get the "core" requirements out of the way. It would produce a 2 year degree (which, unless it's nursing is essentially useless). Then you could matriculate to a state school (less expensive) or private school to complete your four year degree.

Master's level is pricey, but less so in a state school, too.
It may depend on the state Tink, I took ( many moons ago) Sat's and ACT's . I don't know any of the colleges here that don't require it any more at least for American students. It is supposed to be up to each individual school but the vast majority do require it.
