The cost of attendance at a college doesn’t just refer to tuition. It also includes the cost of books, housing, meal plans, travel, personal expenses, and much more. It’s important to consider that the price you see online is not always the price that you’ll end up paying. Depending on your academic achievements as well as your family’s financial background, you may qualify for scholarships and financial aid that can help reduce the cost of tuition. The availability of loans, grants, and work-study are also important factors to consider. A good place to start looking for a lot of this information is on the financial aid pages of college websites. These pages often have net calculators that will give you an estimate of what you’ll pay if you attend the college. FAFSA and the College Board website will also be crucial in applying for financial aid.
