TROY Service Centers meet the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

Please add one more very essential ingredient for successfully completing this semester (and your entire academic career)—your finances. The way you handle your money today can affect your future. It can be as important as staying on top of homework assignments. Get buried in debt and all your dreams can become secondary to your monthly payment. Prudent use of your financial resources every day of your educational experience will carry you successfully forward to graduation and beyond.
Every day you choose to go to class on time, choose to complete all the course assignments, and choose to pass the exams. Freedom of choice includes your finances. Some of you may be opening your first checking account, getting your first credit card, budgeting your own money for the first time and paying all your own bills. This can be tough while you are managing your academic needs, too. You can do it, though, by always choosing financial “survival” skills that include the following:
Part of that money management freedom means that you keep track of the total amount of your student loans and the estimated payment you must make for that dollar amount. Keep all the documents related to your loans for future reference. Written information regarding approximate payment amounts is available in written form and on the web. Keep in mind the estimated salary of your chosen profession. Will you be making enough money to pay the monthly bills for the debt you have created?
Some of you are depending upon financial aid money or the financial support of your family. You may receive a large sum of money all at one time through the financial aid process, from a family member or some other source. It may be intended to last for months. Let’s say you receive $4,000 in aid for an entire semester. Please take a moment to think about how long you must rely on that money and what you may have to do without (food for instance) if you don’t spend it for your basic necessities. If the average cost for total expenses for a semester is approximately $4,000, you don’t have any room for unanticipated spending no matter how enticing the temptation.
Closely monitoring two things will help you prevent financial disaster: (1) how much money you earn or receive and (2) much you spend including payments for all your bills). Track both the money you receive and the money you spend. By doing this, you will have a clear idea of exactly where your money is going each month—and allows you to focus on places where you can cut back.
