The Secrets to NOT Being a Broke College Student - Information Session
April 29, 2017
Have you ever thought about how you will manage your money when you are in college and on your own? Financial experts will present this workshop designed especially for teens, where you will learn what you need to know to avoid eating nothing but breakfast cereal for four years. They will share the inside information on:
- Creating a budget for yourself to make sure you can have fun AND pay the bills while you are in college – and beyond!
- Pros and cons of various credit and banking situations, including payday loans, credit cards, banks, and credit unions
- Ways to make AND save money while you are still in school, and what that means for your taxes
- The different components of credit, including interest rate, APR, billing cycle, late charges, annual fees, and rewards points, and how to make sure your credit score helps instead of hurts you
While designed for youth, it's always great when parents can attend with their kids so you can have these important family finance conversations together. Our financial education experts can help guide you!
