http://tadalafil.accountant // July and August is a time when many college bound students are busy hitting the department stores in their pursuit of decorating their future dorm room. A lot of time is spent putting the dorm room together but there are other items that need to be thought about before they leave in September.
This summer, many of the college bound students have gone to their freshman orientation. As part of that orientation the college will typically have a bank that is on campus. Orientation is a good time to set up a bank account using the most convenient bank or ATM on campus. This is done for three major reasons: safety, convenience and avoidance of bank fees. Often times the banks has special student bank accounts that are designed for the college student and gives parents access to transfer money.
You and your child have spent a lot of time and money getting all the physical items needed to make a successful transition to college. Whether you child is in the dorm or an off campus apartment you should consider protecting their property. Check and see if your homeowner’s will cover their possessions or if you need further coverage. The new computer equipment can be expensive if you need to replace it. Make sure you review the cost and deductibles before purchasing these policies.
Another insurance issue that if often overlooked but could save you a little money is car insurance. Most freshmen are not allowed a car on campus. If you child will not be taking a car you may want to check if a discount on your auto rate is eligible while they are living at school. There is normally a distance requirement to get that college student discount.
College is a great time of learning and growing. It is a time as parents that we should be proud of their continued accomplishments. A little pre-planning on your part can give you the peace of mind that unforeseen problems will have solutions.
