Managing your money can be challenging, especially as a college student. The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid staff is equipped and available to help you be smarter with your money and build a better future.
How you manage your money during your college years will have a major impact on your life after college. To graduate with as little debt as possible, you need to plan now, create a personal budget, and stick to it. No matter what system of budgeting you choose, you must stick to it and resist splurges and impulse-buying. If you do slip up, get right back to your plan. Adopt the “pay yourself first” attitude towards saving in order to build an emergency fund and to plan future purchases. Remember, budgeting isn’t about restricting yourself, but about financially empowering yourself! A budget creates confidence. When it comes to paying for essentials like food and rent, you know you’ve got it covered!
