RePete Ep. 5: What college students REALLY need to know prior to freshman year

We’re back with the second installment of our Expert Series on RePete! This week we’re joined by Phil Schuman, Senior Director of Financial Literacy at Indiana University and our partner in MoneySmarts U, to dive into what a soon-to-be college student REALLY needs to know ahead of freshman year. A question we see time and time again in our inbox, what should I expect, financially, when my young adult heads to college? And furthermore, what are the realistic expectations for me, the parent, in the financial relationship?

Throughout this episode, Pete and Phil look at the basic tools that will set your student up for financial success, the importance of a simple budget, and how to navigate applying for financial aid and scholarships when the time comes.
