If this makes attending the college of your dreams sound impossible, remember, the "sticker price" of tuition doesn't always give you enough information to determine the actual cost of attending any given college.

And, student loans can make the amount you do have to pay for college more manageable until you're done with college.

The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The real 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.
Most schools charge some yearly fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the computer labs and libraries, athletic facilities, and more.
There may be other costs associated with participating in special activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools offer ways so that those who may struggle to participate because of cost can find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.
The cost of getting around 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 small enough that you can easily walk from class-to-class?? Do you plan to bring a car or are you planning to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your estimated cost of transportation. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
The location of a college or university can impact the amount you'll have to spend just to get around. 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 a city is sometimes expensive, but there may be more buses, trains and low-cost flight options to actually get to school. Brigham Young Universityis located in a suburban setting in Utah, not far from Salt Lake City.
