Surviving the college years

Every parent celebrates when their child finally goes to college, but for parents and their child, this truly is just the beginning. It's a real learning experience for the new college student, not only in adapting to the new environment, but more importantly learning how to manage what financial resources they have. For parents, it can be very nerve wracking. If your child is away at school, you no longer have control over their life, and more importantly their study habits and spending. You hope they will act responsibly and choose wisely as they learn and grow through this experience, and as you continue to pay both the annual college bills and those extra monthly expenses that you probably didn't anticipate.

For parents and your student alike, this section provides information that just might help each of you survive the college years. You can access the information using the links below or the tabs above.
