It’s important to know the costs of obtaining your education so you’ll be able to develop your funding plan. For the 2015–2016 academic year, annual current dollar prices for undergraduate tuition, room and board were estimated to be $16,757 at public institutions, $43,065 at private nonprofit institutions and $23,776 at private for-profit institutions. There are many other costs associated with school that aren’t counted in this number such as books, transportation, clothing and possibly child care, which could impact your decisions about going back to school.
