Let's Talk College Costs...Summer 2017

May 12th, 2017 at 05:55 am

I'll keep this short as there isn't much detail to post about taking an online summer class. My daughter did originally sign up for 6 credits. But one of the classes she picked to fulfill a math credit was an engineering class...which is a much higher rate! Basically I told her it wasn't worth it, so she dropped it.

The class is online, so while it is still the non resident rate it is lower than the classroom rate.

The total tuition and fees for one 3 credit hour class is $1,751. She does not have scholarship money that is applied for summer classes. We will be paying this in full out of pocket. I currently have $1,285 saved. I think tuition is due June 12 (although the class doesn't start until July).

My husband gets paid on Monday, so I expect we will have the $466 available at that point. I should put a bit more in as I'm sure there is a text book she will need to buy.

My daughter still has money in her Educational Savings Account. I had considered paying half of tuition with the money in that account, especially when I thought she was taking 6 credits. However, I'm going to save those funds for later, since we are able to pay the full amount out of pocket.

So once again we will have paid some more college costs without student loans! Yea!!

    My oldest daughter has graphic design job for the music department paying $10 an hour, so she will have some work. It kept her pretty busy last year.

    Our youngest daughter will not have much time for a job this summer. She goes on her 14 day Europe trip about two weeks after school gets out. She then has marching band camps two different times during the rest of the summer. And honestly, she has been working super hard this year, so I know she needs some major downtime.
