The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The actual cost of books and supplies depends on the courses you take and the materials required. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.
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 optional fees associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Most colleges have ways for students who may struggle to participate because of cost can find ways to lower or eliminate these fees.
The total cost of getting around in college can really vary. 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 easy to get around on foot? Do you own a car, or will you need to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these questions can make a big difference in your transportation budget. At Emmanuel College, freshman are allowed to park on campus.
A school's location 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.
