Do you get more financial aid if you live at the college?

<p>Room and board only costs like $3000 (which really is a lot, but I don't think compared to other colleges). Will I get significantly more aid if I live at college? I only live like a 40 minute bus ride away from the college of my choice, so I was thinking about just living at home.</p>

<p>It depends on your college. You need to ask them, not us, as there is not a universal answer.</p>

<p>Room and board only costs like $3000</p>

<p>that's really really low...is that per semester or per year? What school is this?</p>

<p>Anyway....to answer your question....</p>

<p>What is your EFC?
Does this school "meet need"?
Does your state give state aid?</p>

<p>Since most schools don't "meet need" it's possible that you won't get any additional money for living on campus....which is why most kids in America do not live on campus.</p>

<p>Edited to add...</p>

<p>Is this UMinn-TC? </p>

<p>If so, then Room and Board is much higher....</p>

<p>Room and board: $7,932 </p>

<p>And the school doesn't "meet need"</p>
