Small Expenses Add to Cost of College
College applications have been completed, acceptance letters have been received, and deposits have been made. Now you are receiving the first bill with the college logo on it, which will include expenses for items billed to you by the college: tuition and fees, and room and board if your child lives on campus. But your children are going to have other expenses that you must plan for as a family, like books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Additional college planning can help you reduce the likelihood of overspending and accumulating unnecessary education-related debt.
