Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2012
In a new survey by CreditDonkey.com, 84.7% of college students surveyed said they feel responsible enough to use a credit card, even though 3 in 10 don't have a credit card.
CreditDonkey.com conducted the online survey of 1,041 college students between August 2 and August 27, 2012.
"I was pleasantly surprised at how savvy today's college students are," says Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com. "In particular, it was refreshing to hear that 1 in 4 would be willing to pay a financial literacy fee to support a college's financial literacy program."
"College students are also appearing less reliant on credit, with 60% of respondents primarily using their debit card for day-to-day expenses, as compared to 16% who pay with a credit card," shares Tran.
