If you are transferring from one college to another it is crucial that you advocate for yourself and politely push to get as many of your accomplished credits transferred to your new school.
Every class that doesn’t transfer is wasted money. Not a bad idea to ask the Admissions team to take more than one look. Sometimes a second set of eyes can get more of your credits accepted, get you closer to graduation and lower cost/loan debt.
If you signed up for a 4 year degree…get it done in four years.
If you stretch it out to 5 or 6 you’ll be paying way more than you should.
(costs increase at most schools every year)
When you go home for the holidays make sure you help out around the house. Cleaning, cooking, shoveling snow, etc.
It isn’t a resort.
If you are hoping to start/transfer college in January you’d better finish all the paperwork THIS Week. Financial Aid takes time to process and MANY colleges close their administrative offices for the two weeks after Christmas. That means no one will be around to help you.
If you fail college classes….don’t expect your parents to send you back for another semester. It’s too much money.
They are parents…not lunatics.
Return all your library books before the semester ends or they will charge you.
Remember to clean out your fridge before leaving the dorm for Christmas or be faced with a moldy new year.
If your school brings in guest speakers to teach you about Financial Literacy…Show them respect. They are guests. And you need their knowledge.
We recently saw some very rude student behavior during a Financial Literacy guest lecture on my campus and guaranteed…those brats will be the same students who end up unemployed and defaulting on their loans.
We’re headed toward the end of the semester.
Studying? Double time!
Your scholarships probably have a minimum GPA requirement.
MY UNIVERSITY SENT ME ANOTHER LETTER ASKING FOR DONATIONS AND
I HAVE THIS IDEA OF STUFFING THE RETURN ENVELOPE WITH A COPY OF A STATEMENT OF MY STUDENT DEBTS
AND SENDING THAT
SHOULD I DO IT
I like this idea. And I feel your pain. I’m a Financial Aid Director who hasn’t had a raise in three years but the school I work for consistently asks ME for donations.
Babysitting is a quick and easy way to earn cash during holiday breaks.
It’s fun too.
