The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The actual cost of books depends on the courses you take and the materials required. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy used textbooks and materials.
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 joining a fraternity or sorority, or playing on an intramural sports team. Most colleges offer resources for students with demonstrated need to get help covering these fees.
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? 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 plan to bring a car or are you planning to use public transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your transportation budget. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
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 an urban area could be costly, but there may be more buses, trains and low-cost flight options to actually get to school. The Washington Adventist University campus is in a suburban setting in Maryland.
When you're planning for college, be sure to take into account personal expenses, like movies, takeouts, furniture or appliances for your dorm or housing, and essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste and toilet paper.
