Most colleges offer resources so that those who may struggle to participate because of cost can find ways to lower or eliminate these fees.
The total cost of transportation in college depends on a few key factors. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school? Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus walkable?
