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.
Most schools also have fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the computer labs and libraries, athletic facilities, and more.
There may be optional fees associated with participating in special activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Many schools have resources for students with demonstrated need to get help covering these fees.
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 small enough that you can easily walk from class-to-class?? Do you own a car, or will you need to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these questions can make a big difference in your estimated cost of transportation.
A school's location can impact transportation costs. 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 is usually expensive, but there may be more buses, trains or low-cost flight options to actually get to school.
