Emergency

Once an online account is started it's a good idea to ensure that you have a little bit cash in the bank in case of emergency, for things like unexpected fee expenses. If you don't have any emergency expenses, so much the better - you'll save more, for when you need it.

A right meal plan

Making a huge meal plan sounds like a good idea. But you may not use it as much as you think. Start with a small plan to figure out how many meals you eat at common. Then you can adjust as you go along.

Balance

Keep up with your spending by checking your account balance as much as you continue spending. Look at the available balance and subtract the money you have used to figure out what you have. Just being aware of what you can spend versus what you would like to spend, will serve to keep your expenses in check.

Right calculations

It takes a lot of hard work and study to reach your goals, which also includes smartly managing your student loan.
Use the money for basic needs such as rent, water and power bills first. Then look ahead to upcoming expenses to determine what you need to save for. Here you will have a reality check on how much money you have for new clothes and going out.

Identity protection

College students are regular victims of theft. Avoid checking your bank balance in public computers. If you must use one be sure to log out and clear the history and cache completely, after using public computer.

Unnecessary expenditure

Keep away extravagant spending. Buying things that you don't really need makes no sense at all. That money should go instead into your savings account and it will assist you to repay the loan later.

Need evaluation

Evaluate the need for having the student loan at the first place, as well as how you use it. For example, students often apply for a loan for the basic support, but end up misusing the funds. Credit cards or ATM card give an easy access to your funds. But unless you have a good discipline in you spending habits, these cards only serve as temptations for overspending and thinking that you have more money than you do.

A pay on time

Make a habit of paying your bills on time, every time to avoid wasting money on late fees. You can sign up with the bank that offers online pay to save time and stamps. This will also create a good credit history that will be very useful in future.

Earn money

Having a student card will enable one earn money by investing the loan properly or applying for small part time jobs like small businesses around the campus. By the time you are through with college you will be able to pay back the loan and have learned good and sound money management skills that will help you in your career.

Student discount

Before you buy something it's important to find if there is student discount for it. You can save money on everything from movie tickets to a new computer, phone or stationery. These small discounts counts a lot.
