MANAGE YOUR MONEY

 

As you transition from college, you will likely need to rethink your finances.

Do you have student loans? Credit card debt? Maybe you owe your parents money. Do you know your credit score? Can you make a budget? Can you stick to it?

It is important that you assess your financial situation and consider your short and long term financial goals.
