"It's important that parents of college students who are studying from home still educate their children about strong financial practices and encourage them to begin putting those practices into action even if they aren't away at school," says Brooklyn Lowery, senior manager of CardRatings.com.
"College students can start building credit histories, learning about responsible credit card use, understanding budgets and spending even if they're still living at home. It might be easy to put off or forget about these things given all the other changes coming for students this fall, but personal finance skills will affect their lives long term and we can't afford to skip these lessons just because the circumstances have changed so dramatically," added Lowery.
