First-year students are sometimes surprised by how much books and supplies cost–and not in a good way. The real cost of books depends on the courses you take and the textbooks, computer programs, or other materials are required.. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.
Most schools also have fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the computer labs and libraries, athletic facilities, and more.
Keep in mind, there could also be optional fees associated with participating in certain activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Most colleges have resources so that those who may struggle to participate because of cost can get help covering these costs.
The cost of transportation in college depends on a few key factors. Will you take a subway, car or an airplane to get to school? Is on-campus parking free, or will you need to budget for parking? Is the campus easy to get around on foot? Do you own a car, or will you need to use public transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your transportation budget. At St. Norbert College, freshman are allowed to park on campus.
A school's location can also have a big effect on the amount you'll have to spend just to get around. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, transportation in a city is sometimes costly, but cities may offer more buses, trains and low-cost flight options to actually get to school. The St. Norbert College campus is in a suburban setting in Wisconsin.
When creating a budget for college, be sure to factor in the cost of things like going out to eat or see shows, furnishing your living space, and things like haircuts, clothes and, yes, even toilet paper and shampoo.
