  • Plan ahead and create a budget for your monthly expenses. Stick to your plans and see your monthly savings grow from pennies to dollars. Here is a thorough guide for creating a budget.
  • Save a portion of your paycheck for emergencies like car problems, medical expenses and other unexpected life events. Start a Savings Calculator to see how little changes can make a difference.
  • Let Worker Retraining (RS 81) help you pay for Professional/Technical training and gain employment! You must sign up to attend an orientation: startnextquarter.org
  • Students who demonstrate at least $3000 of Unmet Need after all other grants and scholarships have been applied qualify for Work Study. Check out the Work Study jobs available here.
