Does Cambridge College Offer In-State and Out-of-State Tuition?

Public schools receive funds from the state to help them cover costs. These institutions offer reduced tuition for students who are residents of that state.

Attending a college where you are eligible for the reduced tuition offered to state residentscan save on the overall cost of college. Don't forget to verify your state's guidelines for how to qualify for in-state tuition. Every state has its own rules about what makes someone eligible for in-state tuition. Most states require students to have resided in the state for a certain period of time before qualifying. There may be other criteria too, depending on the state you and your parents currently reside in.

There may be optional fees associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Many schools offer ways so that those who may struggle to participate because of cost can get help covering these fees.

Transportation costs

The cost of transportation in college can really vary. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school? Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus easy to get around on foot? Do you own a car, or are you planning to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these factors can make a big difference in your transportation budget.

The location of a college or university can impact your transportation budget. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in a city might be pricey, but cities may offer more trains, busses or low-cost flight options to actually get to school.
