Most schools charge some yearly fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
Keep in mind, there could also be other costs associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools have resources for students with demonstrated need to get help covering these fees.
The total cost of getting around in college can really vary. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school? Is on-campus parking free, or will you need to budget for parking? Is the campus walkable? Do you plan to bring a car or will you need to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these questions can drastically impact your estimated cost of transportation. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
A school's location 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 other hand transportation in a city is usually expensive, but there may be more buses, trains and low-cost flight options to actually get to school.
