Transportation – The transportation allowance includes the cost of travel between the student’s residence and the institution, and travel necessary to complete a course of study. Costs may vary because of the student’s place of permanent residence, or the student’s place of residence while in school.

Please note: The above amounts for books & supplies, room & board, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses are averages and will vary widely depending on the circumstances and needs of each student (e.g. place of residence, miles driven throughout the academic year, personal expenses, eating in a campus residence hall or cooking for oneself, etc.)
