College Costs

Take the quiz and find out how much you really know about paying for school.

It’s really important to be aware of and ready for college costs. Once you know what the “price tag” is, you can start to look for ways to make going to school more affordable.

Here’s a checklist to give you an idea of what you can expect:*

  • Application Fees
  • Campus Visit(s)
  • Tuition
  • Room and Board
  • Student Activity Fees
  • Course (Class) Fees
  • Books
  • Transportation
  • Student Health Insurance

*Note: not all of these costs may apply to the school you attend.

In high school maybe twice a year we would get letters from different people saying, ‘Come to this workshop and we will help you find money for school’. And so me and my mom actually went to one. And they made it seem like the FAFSA would be so hard to fill out. So not long after that I was at the public library and I obtained a copy of that year’s FAFSA and me and my mom went through it. And it’s not hard at all. It’s simple and the instructions are there.
