Indirect Costs
50
This is the money that is not directly paid to the college but needs to be budgeted for, like money for your books, school supplies, travel to and from campus, etc. Schools may offer you a work study, which you will receive in paychecks as you work throughout the semester--like a regular job. Work Study (sometimes combined with a summer job and parent contribution) is a great way for students to earn money to cover these additional costs.
