Four things to check carefully before applying to a college or university:
- Fees: Fees can add hundreds or thousands of dollars to the tuition. Some colleges charge a parking fee, a library fee, an application fee, an audit fee, a lab fee, technology fee, ATI fee, graduation fee, placement testing, and even more. These fees can add thousands of dollars to the tuition. Find a college or university that does not charge additional fees.
- Textbooks: Many colleges and universities require you to purchase textbooks and supplies. This can add thousands of dollars to the tuition. Find a college or university that includes books in the tuition.
- Laptop: A laptop with the right software is essential for today’s college work. A laptop with the right software can cost over a thousand dollars. Find a college or university that provides a laptop you can use in school and keep when you graduate.
- Grants, Loans, and Scholarships: Student financial aid can be complex and you need help to be sure that you will get all the financial aid, grants, and loans for which you qualify. Find a college or university that provides help with all of the forms and paperwork.
All tuition numbers are not equal; check carefully.
