Meal-plan costs can depend on how many meals are included in the plan you choose.
The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The actual cost of books 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 used textbooks and materials.
Most schools also have fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the computer labs and libraries, athletic facilities, and more.
Keep in mind, there could also be other costs associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools offer ways for students with demonstrated need to get help covering these fees.
The total cost of transportation in college depends on a few key factors. 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 easy to get around on foot? Do you own a car, or will you need to use public transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your estimated cost of transportation. At CCF, freshman are allowed to park on campus.
The location of a college or university can also have a big effect on your transportation budget. 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 trains, busses and low-cost flight options to actually get to school.
