A Crash Course in Finance for College Students

Whether you’re just starting college or about to finish up, it’s good to know how your finances work and how to make the most of your banking experience. With all of the options out there, it can be tough to decide which financial institution to choose and which one will best fit your needs as a student. Here are a few tips to help you thrive financially during college.

Bank Different
Many young adults will open an account at the same credit union or bank their parents use. But what happens when you move away from home?

Numerous websites compare brick-and-mortar credit unions and banks to online financial institutions. Research before opening an account with any establishment—there could be hidden fees or minimum balance requirements, and these minimums could be hard to meet as a college student.

Save Money Now
If you’re taking out student loans, don’t wait until you’re earning a real salary to pay them off. Open a savings account with high interest rates and no fees.
