Questions About Student Credit? Join Us For A Google Hangout

  By June 17, 2013


A new world of financial responsibilities awaits young adults leaving home for college. For many students, that includes navigating the financial products marketed at them — such as credit cards. Unfortunately, mistakes made with that first credit card can set students up for years of financial problems.

That’s why we’re gathering some experts for a Google Hangout to talk about credit tips for college students. Have a question for our panel? Or just want to watch? Here’s everything you need to know.

Who: On our panel, we’ll have Martin Dasko from Studenomics, Rebecca Barry from the University of Arizona’s Credit-Wise Cats, and Susan Knox, author of the book “Financial Basics: A Money Management Guide for Students.” Our credit expert-at-large Erica Sandberg (you know her from our Ask Erica column) will be moderating.

When: Tuesday, June 18, at 4:15 p.m. EST. The video will remain viewable afterward if you miss the live chat.

Where: You can watch live by visiting our Google + page.

What we’ll be talking about: Some of the topics we’ll be tackling include:

  • How students can know if they’re really ready for a credit card
  • What parents should tell their kids about credit before sending them off to college
  • What college students find most confusing about credit
  • The risks of co-signing credit cards

Want to ask a question? You can send it to us in advance at During the chat, you can tweet at us using the hashtag #studentcredit or leave us a comment on our Google+ page.

We hope you’ll hang out with us. In the meantime, check out our Love and Money Google Hangout from February.
