About TU

Navigating college finances

horizontal color

Money Attitude is geared to assist students and parents with navigating college finances.  It is an additional resource to existing Towson University (TU) resources, with the purpose to provide a more comprehensive overview of how things works on the federal, state and institutional levels.  It comes from the perspective that students and parents need to first understand how things work in order to better manage paying for known and unexpected college expenses.

This website also serves as a reminder to prospective, current students and alumni that it's never too late to get started with managing your money.  A good place to start is to determine how you want to use your money by completing this Financial Goals Worksheet!  For how to save money, use the How to Save Money calculators for daily expenses, auto loan, and paying off debt.

If you have just one credit card with a $10,000 blance and a 12% interest rate, it will take you an average of 24.9 years to pay this off while making the minimum payment.
