Students also have expenses for books, supplies, transportation, and personal items. While the costs will vary from student to student, the figures below will give you an estimate of what to expect. The College uses these amounts when determining a student's eligibility for financial aid.
Books and supplies: $1,000
Personal and miscellaneous expenses: $1,210
Students should contact the Office of Financial Aid to request a review of their budget if actual expenses are significantly different from the costs listed above. Child care expenses, computer purchases, disability related expenses, etc. can be taken into consideration.
You can use Gettysburg's Cost and Resources Worksheet (pdf, appropriate for first-year students) and Online Cost Calculator, including housing and meal-plan options for continuing students, as a tool to determine your individual 2015-16 academic year costs.
Prospective students can use Gettysburg's Net Price Calculator for an estimate of need-based financial aid.
