PUT YOUR HANDS ON SOME CASH. Now that you know how to prepare for college, it’s time to discover how much college will cost and how to pay for it.
COLLEGES BREAK DOWN THEIR COSTS INTO THESE CATEGORIES:
• Tuition & Fees – this is the amount of money a college charges for the courses you take and for services like computer labs, fitness centers, and career services. • Books & Supplies – you’ll be required to purchase or rent textbooks and/or supplies for your classes. • Room & Board – if you live on campus, the college will charge you to live in a residence hall and for the meals you eat in the cafeteria.
