UKFCU features a Personal Financial Program under the Planning Tools section of our web site called MoneyEd. One of the selections under that area is titled Personal Finance for College Students, which breaks it down into 4 steps:
- Open a checking account, and even shows you how to reconcile your account
- Create a budget, with forms to help you start
- Build a credit history and choosing a credit card
- Avoid unnecessary debt
Here’s a link to the Personal Finance for College Students section.
UKFCU still offers a free Smart checking account for students, which comes with a low interest rate credit card and other benefits.
