From podcasts to calculators to individual online meetings with a student or staff member, MoneySmarts has all the resources you need to be a finance master.

Know what money you have available to cover your costs? Know how much money you’ll need? The college budget balancer will help you evaluate your personal college budget and make a financial success plan. Expenses more than resources? Consider applying for additional aid or looking for ways to cut your costs. Resources more than expenses? Consider reducing your loan amounts or saving money for later.

Student loans can be an important investment in your education and your future. But, they're an investment that has to be paid back. Start taking action while you are still in school. Steps you take now can help minimize your overall debt and maximize your ability to afford your loan repayment.
