Unlike high school (or at least the last semester of it!) college takes a bit more than just showing up. You’ve probably noticed this in class — and out.
Take living on your own (and on your own dime), for example. It’s a rite of passage, but knowing how to afford the experience you’re dreaming of isn’t so obvious. Spending and saving while you’re a student can wind up adding another layer of stress.
That’s where SoFi and this guide step in, offering you the info and tools you need to stress less and succeed. As a one-stop shop for your finances, SoFi is here to help you bank, borrow, budget, and invest — with our innovative products and features. Our aim: to empower you to take control of your financial journey – and even enjoy the ride.
