Video: Experts Talk Student Credit

  By June 19, 2013


In addition to picking a major and adjusting to life away from home, many college students find themselves contending with financial independence — and credit — for the first time.

But we wouldn’t want students to have to learn everything the hard way. Credit mistakes can have major repercussions, after all. So we gathered a panel of experts, including Susan Knox (CPA and author of “Financial Basics: A Money Management Guide for Students”), Martin Dasko from personal finance blog Studenomics and Rebecca Barry from the University of Arizona’s Credit-Wise Cats, for a Google Hangout.

With our moderator and CreditCardGuide expert-at-large Erica Sandberg, our panel tackled some touchy questions (Should you co-sign a credit card for a friend?), gave some solid advice (How do you know you’re really ready for a credit card?) and shared some wisdom for parents (What do your kids need to know about credit before they fly the nest?).
