First-year students are sometimes surprised by how much books and supplies cost–and not in a good way. The real cost of books and supplies 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.
The majority of colleges charge some yearly fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
Keep in mind, there could also be additional fees associated with participating in certain activities, like Greek Life, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools have resources so that those with demonstrated need to find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.
The cost of transportation in college depends on a few key factors. 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 easy to get around on foot? Do you plan to bring a car or will you need to use public transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your transportation budget. At University of New England, freshman are allowed to park on campus.
The location of a college or university can also have a big effect on 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 sometimes costly, but there may be more trains, busses or affordable flights to actually get to school. The University of New England campus is in a small town setting in Maine.
When estimating your budget for college, don’t forget to leave some room in your budget for 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.
