Finances getting Tight?

Don’t wait until you have no money left to start thinking about budgeting. This is a major stressor for college students so plan ahead to keep your cool. Being prepared means you can maintain your relaxed mind which is going to help you succeed socially and academically.

Maybe you are thinking it is already too late to budget but getting a clear sense of how you will survive this home stretch is well worth some time.

The Loyalist Financial Aid office has a wonderful pamphlet which will help guide you through the necessary steps for good money management.

Emergency food hampers are available to students so be sure you don't go hungry. Students can meet with their Student Success Mentor, Counselling Services, Mind and Wellness Nurse if they are in need of food.

This site offers tips on budgeting your funds.
