Personal Money Management

It’s no secret that going to college can be expensive. Students no longer just have to think about the cost of tuition, dormitory costs, meal plans and books. These days, students have to think about additional expenses such as health insurance, travel costs for going home, cell phones, dining on or off campus, computers, and other daily expenses.

It can all add up pretty quickly, so before you're in over your head, understanding the importance of managing your money, establishing credit, and learning how to spend it wisely will help provide guidance.
