If you are like most college students, your top priority is your education, but you can make sure monetary concerns don’t get in the way of your studies by fitting financial management into your schedule. If someone else isn’t footing the entire bill for the next few years, you are responsible for making sure you have enough money for tuition, books, food, housing, entertainment, and/or other expenses. Even if your parents are supporting you now, once you leave the confines of campus, you’ll be faced with a whole new set of costs. Learning to make the most of your money today can help you prepare for tomorrow. This podcast will cover:

  • Money Management
  • Checking and Savings Accounts
  • Credit Cards
  • Household Bills
  • Student Loans
