Your education goes beyond the classroom:
Welcome to college! This is an exciting time when you’ll explore ideas and possibilities that will impact your life. This might be the first time you’re making money-management decisions on your own, too. If you’re footing the bill for your education, you probably already appreciate the demands on your time that will come from studying and working your way through college in North Carolina and anywhere beyond.
If you’re focused solely on studying right now, you probably know that your education could lead to $100,000 or more in debt, depending on scholarships you receive and the school you attend. That’s a hefty price tag for you and/or your family.
Now that we’re talking about advanced educational opportunities, it’s time for a crash course in budgeting for college students who haven’t taken any economics or personal finance courses.
