This indicator represents ten years of room and board charges at FSU as reported to the federal government in its IPEDS Institutional Characteristics Survey. The room charges are the average annual cost of a double-occupancy room. The board charges are based on meal plans that cover 14 meals per week and include an allotment for additional on-campus food purchases. Of course, there are additional expenses to consider in estimating the annual cost of attendance, such as books, laboratory fees, and transportation.
