Exclamation Dead clutch...Help..

I'm new here, and in desperate need of some help.

I went to drive to school today in my 93' Wrangler. Got in, started it up, and went to put it into gear and the clutch went straight to the floor. It will do nothing but bounce. There's no tension. I checked the fluid level and it's full.

I've never owned a Jeep before this one let alone a 5spd vehicle. So I have no idea whats going on when my clutch won't work.

Anyone else have this problem? And if so, how much was it to fix? I'm a college student so the thought of how much this could cost to fix is driving me nuts.
