How To Build Credit As A College Student- Bankrate.com


Hello all!  My friends over at BankRate.com recently published a really helpful article discussing the importance of building to build a strong credit foundation (outside of student loans) while you are in college.  I have discussed this here on the site previously, and is a huge piece of my Dollar Camp Program; but they offer some additional insight such as: Opening a Student-Level credit card, not applying for too many at one time, looking to obtain a co-signer and a bunch of great responsibility tips.

Check it out.  There's some really great literacy in the piece.  I know that some of you I have spoken with will be taking a hiatus this Fall, but as a side note please remember to be mindful of any outstanding loans as they will go into repayment 6 months after your LDA (Last Date of Attendence.)  So for instance if your last day was May 15, you're looking at mid- November.  Please contact your lender regarding deferment and forbearance options!

Stay safe!

Can we remove 2020 from the calendar?  Has Congress passed that yet?  Because it has been TWO YEARS since I held my last DollarCamp session...
