When planning the cost of a year in college, a student should keep in mind the amount of funds that will be spent from the time of leaving home until the return at the close of the school year. To compare several school options and find which school fits the students goals, budget, and housing options a Net Price Calculator is available.

Costs vary with regard to the different courses of study, type of housing, transportation costs, individual circumstances, and extraordinary expenses incurred through inflation. Additionally, costs tend to vary according to the thrift, taste, choice, and habit of the individual participant.

To help you determine the cost of an academic year, Navarro College publishes an expense budget (see the School (TG) Fact Sheet). Expenses are based on one academic year (Fall and Spring semesters) for a “typical” student. A budget calculator can be a useful tool for helping determine how much you will spend while attending college.

An average budget for the academic year (nine months) reflects direct and indirect costs. Direct educational expenses include tuition, fees, books, and supplies. Indirect expenses include room and board, transportation, and personal expenses.

Costs of attendance are subject to change.
