Several of my co-workers with kids in college were talking today about how some places of higher learning charge for things like parking even if you don’t have a car on campus.
One of the parents had told me that her son’s college automatically charges every student a $75 parking fee. But someone at the school happened to mention to her that by filling out a certain form, carless students can get the money back.
So it’s probably a good idea for you, and your child, to sit down and review the fees you’re being charged in case any of them don’t apply and you might be able to get out of paying them. Also, ask around among other students and parents to see if they know of any fees you can get out of and how to do it.
