Approximate cost of books and supplies at Harvard

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows the average cost of books and supplies for a year at Harvard University. I'd just like to have a rough estimate for potential budgeting purposes. Thanks!

Hey there! The average cost of books and supplies at Harvard University is estimated to be around $1,000 to $1,200 per academic year. This is, of course, a rough estimate and can vary depending on your major, the courses you take, and whether you purchase new, used, or digital textbooks.

To save money on books and supplies, you can also consider renting textbooks, buying used books, or borrowing them from the library or classmates. Don't forget to also factor in additional costs such as lab fees and course materials, which may not be included in this estimate.

On a separate note, if you end up applying to Harvard and want tips on how to maximize your chances of acceptance, check out this blog post from CollegeVine, which breaks down how to tackle their school-specific supplemental essays: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-harvard-university-essays/.
