Posted on August 11th, 2013

Are you a soon-to-be college freshman? With all the excitement of starting college, personal finance probably isn’t at the top of your mind.

But learning how to manage your finances early on in college can save you time, stress, and money later. Check out these 10 useful personal finance tips for college freshmen from Chegg.

These tips really apply to all college students: present, future, and recently graduated. Sticking to a budget, creating an emergency fund, and safeguarding your personal information are essential, no matter what your age.

Being careful with your finances in college is the best way to prepare for unexpected college costs–such as a once-in-a-lifetime study abroad opportunity or that tropical Spring Break vacation you want to take with your roomies.

If you’re careful with your finances early on in college, you might even have some extra cash to spend on a fun Spring Break vacation with your friends.

The earlier you start saving and looking after your finances, the better off you’ll be, both during college and after you graduate.
