Evaluate Overall Cost Closely

When evaluating the cost of other institutions make sure you understand any extra fees or hidden charges that you may be responsible for paying.  Some of these typical extra fees may be video/DVD fees, student activity fees, library fees, registration fees, parking fees, mailing costs, and others.  Luther Rice does not make available any housing on-campus or off-campus for students.  Therefore, room and board costs are not listed.
