Learn how to avoid financial disaster as a college student--and learn about a new scholarship opportunity available only to those who attend this workshop!
College-bound New Haven high school juniors and seniors and their parents are invited to this workshop presented by Mary K. Johnson, Financial Literacy & Consumer Advocacy Manager at Higher One in New Haven. Ms. Johnson will also announce a new scholarship opportunity available only to those who attend!
Going to college is a significant investment of time and money, with long-term consequences. Unfortunately, many students fall into the traps of overspending and credit card debt that can have dire impact on their chances of success in school and for a long time after graduation. This workshop is intended to offer high school juniors and seniors the “heads-up” they need about financial literacy as they prepare for their college experience. Students will learn how to stay financially afloat with good money habits, including choosing and managing a bank account, and creating a budget they can live with. Parents will gain insight into the financial issues that college students must cope with for successful outcomes.
HIGHER ONE provides a full array of financial services including refunds, payments and electronic billing to almost 700 institutions of higher education, while also providing nearly 5 million students nationwide with a smart new way to manage their student loans and college expenses.
