The importance of planning ahead
Whatever your financial needs may be, it's essential to plan ahead. Just like thinking through all the classes you need to take to complete your program, it’s critical to create a sound financial plan that will cover the cost of tuition, books, and life as a student.
Keep track of deadlines and know when and from where your funding is coming. It takes time to apply for and receive loans, bursaries, and scholarships, so make sure you start planning well before class begins.
