Every year, thousands of students select a college to attend. Decisions hinge on factors including convenience, cost, financial aid or grant availability, location or simply because the college is the same one a parent or sibling went to. Wherever you wind up, the costs of college can quickly add up.

Depending on which side of the country you choose to relocate to and whether the college is a public or a private institution, the expenses can vary. Luckily, there are ways to navigate the costs of going to college by mapping out how you intend to utilize the options available to you. The infographic below is a great resource for students seeking to chart out the average costs of attending college:
