:: I Need Help Managing My Money ::
The financial decisions you make in college not only follow you through senior year, but the rest of your life. It's important to start developing healthy money habits, like borrowing smart and following a spending plan, now rather than later.
OCAP's financial literacy program, Oklahoma Money Matters, provides college students with information and resources they need to manage their money. From creating your budget to building your credit to managing your debt, OKMM has the resources to help.
I need help putting together a budget!
Online Personal Budgeting Tool: This personal budgeting tool contains 10 main spending categories, with numerous sub categories under each. Sub categories can easily be renamed, deleted or added, so you may have complete control over customization. As you enter your projected expenses, the tool subtracts your expense total from your monthly income total, allowing you to quickly see if changes need to be made to your spending plan. When you're satisfied with your budget, you can export it to an Excel file and save it to your computer for future reference.
