After touring or reviewing prices online compare and contrast the direct costs of community colleges, 4-year colleges, and vocational programs in your area. These direct costs include: tuition, parking pass, room and board, books and supplies, health fee, application fee, etc. There is a key attached for post-secondary education schools in Orange County, CA. However if you do not reside here, you can still use it as an example.
The key includes: GWC, LBCC, UCI, CSUF, Art Institute, HB Community Center, Coastline ROP.
Teaching duration can vary depending how you teach it. I have printed out the cost page from the different schools in class and had the students locate and plug the information in. Additionally I have broken this up over numerous lessons completing each schools information while on a tour of each place.
