Financial Literacy for College-Bound Students

Find a comprehensive list of financial skills the New York Times recommends college-bound students learn to properly manage their money, safeguard their financial/personal information, and function in society. (Don’t forget to learn everyday skills like how to read laundry labels and operate the washer/dryer as well!)

Although not specifically mentioned in the list, an underlying skill that is essential for implementing some of the financial skills is self-advocacy. Students have to learn to speak up (ask question concerning their rights or to defend their rights) in situations involving authoritative figures (professors, administrators, DMV workers, police officers, etc.).
