There may be other costs associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or playing on an intramural sports team. Most colleges have ways for students with demonstrated need to find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.
The cost of getting around in college can really vary. 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 walkable? Do you plan to bring a car or are you planning to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these questions can make a big difference in 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, transportation in an urban area is usually costly, but cities may offer more buses, trains and affordable flights to actually get to school. Boise Bible Collegeis in a suburban setting in Idaho.
