Banneker Key financial question
My DD was very fortunate to receive the Banneker Key full scholarship. My question is - what further costs will we be responsible for? We've given a $400 deposit and paid for orientation. Does upperclass housing generally cost more than the standard amount? Where can I find out more information about hidden fees? We are all very thrilled about the offer - I just want to find out about what we should budget for. DD has been laid off from part-time job due to coronavirus epidemic, but luckily has savings for incidentals.8 replies
