Carroll University: In-state vs. Out-of-State Tuition

Carroll University is a private, religious institution, which means it has the same tuition for residents of Wisconsin as it does for residents from other states.

Public colleges and universities receive funding from the state government. Public, state schools can offer lower tuition for students who meet the requirements for in-state residency.

Attending a college where you are eligible for the reduced tuition offered to state residentscan drastically reduce the total cost of attending college. Be sure to verify your state's eligibility criteria for in-state tuition. Each state has different requirements to qualify as in-state resident. Most states require students to have resided in the state for a certain period of time before qualifying. There may be other criteria as well, depending on the state you and your parents currently live in.

Annual Fees

The majority of colleges charge some yearly fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.

There may be other costs associated with participating in certain activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools have ways for students who may struggle to participate because of cost can find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.

Transportation costs

The cost of getting around in college can really vary. 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 walkable? Do you own 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 not allowed to park a car on campus.

The location of a college or university can also have a big effect on 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, getting around in a city is sometimes expensive, but there may be more buses, trains and low-cost flight options to actually get to school. The Carroll University campus is located in a suburban setting in Wisconsin, not far from Milwaukee.

Other Costs

When you're planning 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.
