Host: I m worried I might get into financial trouble in college. What should I do? Brad Barnett: Now, this is a big problem for students who are just starting college. It's a problem for the students who are in college as well but what we really hope is that by the time you start as afresh, that you had some responsibility for your money, if not, then you need to talk to your parents before you go to school and work out a system on how that can take place from developing a budget, to learning how to using a checking account, to learning about a debit card, how to avoid credit card debt, taking out unnecessary loans. The sooner you get a handle on this, the more affordable college is going to be and the better your life is going to be after college because you won t be paying off unnecessary debts. If you need assistance and you are in college talk to your financial aid office. Most of offices are there to help you learn how to do these things.
