Tips for Students
Establishing strong budgeting habits is essential for students and recent graduates. Whether you’re paying off student loans, saving for a car, or getting ready to rent your first apartment, creating monthly goals can help you track progress and achieve milestones. As a student, it’s important to understand your unique set of financial priorities. For example, your parents may cover your housing costs, or you might have to pay monthly rent. Similarly, your arrangement may offer a meal plan, or perhaps it’s your first time having to cook for yourself. Either way, budgeting can help prepare you to take on these new responsibilities.
