Save Your Pennies: The Cost to Apply to College Adds Up  

By Mary Johnson
October 24, 2014

High school students and their families getting ready to apply for college are probably most focused on the cost of attending, but they also should be aware of the hefty costs associated with just applying to college. These costs can add up quickly if you're not paying attention, especially if you apply to more than just a few schools. According the National Association for College Admission Counseling, students are applying to more schools than ever before, thanks in part to the fact that many schools now accept the Common Application -- more than a third of students now apply to more than seven colleges!

With regard to application fees, the good news is that about half of the 518 schools that participate in the Common Application do not charge a fee if you apply online. For the other half, the fees can vary. While some schools have low fees of $10, most schools are in the $50 range, though some more competitive and national colleges and universities have fees over $60 -- Stanford University, for example, charges $90 and Yale University, $80. You can find a complete list of application fees from the schools that accept the Common Application at CollegeData.com.

Before Higher One, our students only had one way to get their refunds, and that was by paper check. With Higher One processing refunds for us, it has allowed us to provide more options for our students without having to enter and store student banking information. We also no longer have to handle sorting, stuffing and mailing thousands of checks.Suzanne ClaggettUniversity of West Florida
