Money mistakes to avoid as a college student

1. Underestimating just how much everything will cost.

2. Seriously though, even a single textbook can cost a couple hundred dollars.

3. Not applying for scholarships or financial aid.

4. Taking out way, way too much in student loans….

5. And using them for all the wrong reasons.

6. Also depending way too much on credit cards.

7. Failing classes. This is not just a waste of time, but a huge waste of money also.

8. Taking on too many courses at once (which is an easy way to overwhelm yourself and potentially fail).

9. Realizing a semester before graduation that you hate what you majored in. Although everything could still work out in the end, picking the wrong major can end up being another huge waste of time and money.

10. Taking 10 years to finish that four-year degree.

11. Partying and going out way too much. Having a social life is good, but if you’re overdoing it, you won’t be giving your schoolwork the attention it needs. Not to mention—going out can be expensive.

12. Not sticking to any type of budget at all.
