There are a lot of students who are transitioning from high school to college that is why National Debt Relief shares some tips for them on how to manage their finances. The article titled “5 Financial Moves For Students Entering College” released July 2, 2018, gives college students the chance to understand their finances better.
The article starts off by pointing out that college is oftentimes referred to as limbo stage for young students. They are not kids anymore after leaving high school but they are not quite adults yet. A lot of college students would live in a campus dorm, eating at the dining hall, or even living back home with their parent. Even if they have not yet fully immersed in the adult world, it is a good idea to start preparing financially as well.
The article shares that college students need to have a financial plan even with the amount they will use in school. They need to include all the money that they have saved, any contributions their parents can make, scholarships, grants, tuition, room and meal plan, cost of books, and others. Once college students know how much they need, they can better plan for their finances.
The article also explains that college students need to start saving up for an emergency fund. This is because college students will never know when they will need it. It can come from vehicle repairs, unexpected medical bills, or added school fees, This can all catch them unprepared and force them to rely on credit cards. This can be the start of their debt problems.
The article also shares how college students should explore getting a part-time job. This can help their finances greatly. For one, this can help pay for a part of their cost of attendance. As a result, they would not have to take out huge student loans for their cost of attendance.
