The cost of a postsecondary education can vary greatly depending on the college or university one chooses to attend. To help you find the school that best matches your financial goals, we have compiled numerous facts about the pricing, enrollment and admission trends at more than 7,000 colleges and universities across the country.

In this section, you will find information about the various expenses associated with enrolling at your school of interest. Tuition, generally the largest of fees, is broken down by in-state and out-of-state fields. Because students who attend schools outside of their state may find themselves paying thousands more in tuition alone, it’s important to take one’s location into consideration before selecting a school.

As college prices tend to fluctuate from year to year, we have also provided information about tuition trends. While rising prices are an unfortunate norm, greatly varying tuition rates should raise a red flag. Many students need additional time to complete their degrees, so the possibility of higher pricing should be taken into account before committing to a school.

But one may not want to use tuition alone to calculate their cost of attendance. Doing so too often leads to projections that largely differ—for better or for worse—from initial expectations. To avoid unnecessary surprises, we offer information about the estimated cost of books, supplies, room and board and additional expenses. Knowing what to expect will simplify the financial planning process and will allow students to prepare a realistic annual budget.

You can use the following prices to estimate the annual cost of attendance and to familiarize yourself with the financial aid opportunities available to students who attend this school.

Hi, my name is Mandy Kobernusz from Spencer, South Dakota. I am a transfer student and my major is Ag Business and Equine Studies minor at South Dakota State University. I was born deaf and had an implant surgery at age of 4. Being deaf isn't easy. I'm currently working at the daycare for Christmas break and summer break and it's not enough to pay for my tuition and fees. I'm planning using all my bank accounts and all the money I have to pay it. I do not want to transfer another college, I finally found what I want which is SDSU. I wanted to apply for this scholarship because it will help me to pay for the tuition, housing, books, etc. I don't have financial aid anymore because of my GPA is 1.68. I was just hoping to get this just for spring 2017 so I can bring up my GPA up and to get the financial aid back in fall 2017. I went to Southeast Techincal Insititute in Sioux Falls, SD and I didn't like it. So I transferred to South Dakota State University and I thought it was going well but I didn't know that my GPA does include from Southeast Tech and summer online classes. Before I transferred to SDSU, at Southeast Tech my GPA was 3.73 but only transferred two of classes from Southeast to SDSU. I totally understand that if you don't accept it because of my low GPA but I will try to bring my GPA up in Spring 2017 and use all the help that I need. Thank you for taking your time reading this!
