Choosing which college to attend is an important decision-probably one of the most important decisions you'll make. However, before deciding, you'll need to apply. There are some important things to consider before applying to college, and Boise State University is no exception. Think about:
- Finances. Going to college can be expensive, so it's important to review your finances and determine what you can afford. Boise State University is charging $4,410 (in-state) and $12,578 (out-of-state) for tuition in 2007, which is a good indication of what 2008 tuition will be as well.
If you're planning to live on campus, you'll also need to factor in room and board. On-campus housing at Boise State University currently costs $5,938, so you'll need to add that to your tuition costs as well.
