Being financially literate means having the skills and knowledge you need to manage your financial well-being, credit, and debt effectively. Understanding and staying on top of your finances has a direct impact on your education and your professional
life after earning your degree.
Create a Budget
The first step in funding your education is estimating your expenses and creating a budget. You may find it helpful to refer to the estimated Cost of Attendance published by The New School for each academic year, which
includes estimated expenses for
- Tuition and fees
- Books and supplies
- Personal items
Try developing a simple budget worksheet listing your income and expenses.
