Many colleges provide information on average costs for attendance. However, these costs will vary based on your lifestyle and the major course work you decide to pursue. In addition to the typical cost of attendance at a college, such as tuition, room and board, you will need to figure in additional fees, books, supplies and miscellaneous expenses, such as personal expenses and transportation.
The first step to figuring out how to pay for college is to estimate the cost of attendance at the colleges that interest you. Check each college's website. It is a good idea to review other materials to verify and update each college's information, e.g., course catalogs, school brochures or publications.
