Are there other costs of going back to school?
While Futures for Frontliners makes tuition affordable, going back to school still has other costs.
There may also be costs outside of tuition and other fees that you should plan for:
- Book and supplies
- Technology costs
- Course fees
- Childcare expenses
- Transportation expenses
To help you estimate your costs, each community college offers a "net price calculator" on their website. These calculators estimate the costs for housing, books and supplies, and personal expenses such as transportation. These estimates are based on full-time enrollment. If you're planning to enroll part-time, remember that the costs will be half of what the calculator estimates.
