Heading to college for the first time? Dorm life puts a roof over your head and meals on your plate, but it doesn't take care of other costs: books and school supplies, clothes, travel, entertainment, and more. If you want to have enough money to pay your expenses throughout the year, and stay out of financial trouble, you should make a budget and stick to it. Here's how.
If you're thinking about going to graduate school, you'll need to figure out how to pay for it. With tuition alone costing thousands of dollars, you should explore every avenue for financing your education. Start planning early, research schools and programs, and consider loans, scholarships, and working part time, among other things.
