Monday, May 19, 2008 Student credit and student loans

A typical college curriculum is loaded coursework dedicated to history, math, english, science, and whatever classes that support your actual major. The one thing that colleges lack in teaching is basic financial education, most notably how to handle debt; including credit cards, student loans, and finances beyond the college experience. I imagine some college students have no concept of balancing a checkbook and the word "budget" what is that? Sad but true.

Many websites offer good information about credit card information and definitions. If you want to learn more about student credit or information about student loans, visit the student credit page here or the student loan page here.
