The cost of going to college has changed dramatically since many of our parents have gone Many parents consider starting to save for there childrens education as soon as they are born When evaluating college costs the first numbers people usually turn to are tuition room and board While the tuition figures listed in most financial aid guides are fairly accurate the average room and board figures can sometimes be off There are many expenses that arent always discussed and that you might not consider Although the cost of college has risen it is almost necessary to have a college degree in this day and age Tuition is fairly simple to understand its the amount the college requires to attend class At some colleges theres a flat tuition amount regardless of how many credit hours are taken At others the amount depends on the number of credit hours In a government study taken in 2000 Over three quarters of all college students attend an in state college or university due to the relatively low in state tuition US1 The first thing youll want to do when adding up the total cost is put down the exact tuition amount If the school bases the amount on number of credit hours assume 15 hours per term There are some fees required of all students and some that may have to be paid simply because of the major you choose For example science majors may have to pay a refundable lab breakage deposit of 50 to 100 per lab course Assume that youll get none of this amount refunded since even the most careful student breaks a beaker occasionally Some colleges may also have an optional student services fee depending upon whether you choose to participate in certain activities Books are another huge part of the cost of college Here again this figure will vary according to the major For example science books can be extraordinarily expensive 75
