Now that students are in the swing of classes, financial issues can start to catch up with them, so it's a good time to check in and make sure things are on the right track. It's really important for parents to keep communicating, so in addition to sharing the latest family updates, offering some timely suggestions on personal finances can't hurt -- especially for those who haven't had a lot of experience managing money on their own.

1. One of the most common freshmen money mistakes is overspending and trying to keep up with peers on eating out and other entertainment. If they are blowing through their cash too quickly, remind them that one way to save money is to take full advantage of their meal plan as well as other free amenities on campus that you have already paid for.

September 21, 2014

Higher One, a university financial services organization, has awarded the Financial Literacy Counts Grant to Lee University for fall 2014. The grant will fund the Financial Literacy and Money Empowerment project, sponsored by Lee’s Financial Aid Office.

The project’s goal is to coordinate a campus-wide financial literacy campaign to reach all students. It will provide opportunities for students to engage in educational activities in order to promote critical thinking about financial responsibilities and money fitness.

Activities will include freshman orientation financial matters sessions, online financial counseling, and coffee chats and promotional booths to promote awareness. These will be implemented through a Financial Avenue online course module, the Gateway freshman seminar class, and collaboration with Phi Beta Lambda, a student-led business club.

Common Application Revs Up Again

Eric Hoover
July 31, 2014

The 2014-15 Common Application will go live at 8 a.m. on Friday, which means this nation of eager-beaver college applicants can start their apps before breakfast. As many as 50,000 high-school students are expected to create accounts over the next few days.

Following  a difficult cycle for the Common App, admissions officers and college counselors will be watching the online system closely over the coming months. Last year a series of technical problems complicated the admissions process for applicants, high schools, and colleges. The glitches caused coast-to-coast frustrations, and some members expressed concerns about the direction of the organization that runs the online system.

Testimonials

Before Higher One, our students only had one way to get their refunds, and that was by paper check. With Higher One processing refunds for us, it has allowed us to provide more options for our students without having to enter and store student banking information. We also no longer have to handle sorting, stuffing and mailing thousands of checks.Suzanne ClaggettUniversity of West Florida
