Thinking About Money as a Yale College Student

First things first: 

Understand how much money you have, will have and when you will have it, and where it comes from. That means understanding your Yale Bursar’s account, your possibilities for earning money, and your tax obligations. If you are an international student, OISS has the information you need.

Do you have a bank account? How well do you understand how to use it most efficiently during your life at Yale? Understanding checking and savings accounts, online bill payment, transaction fees – these things may not be very interesting, but if you don’t feel as if you really understand your situation, you could start with learning about how banking works.
