Tips for Managing Your Money

  • Check your account balances often, including your FLASHcash
  • PNC is Kent State's banking service provider. 
  • Be aware it’s more tempting to buy things you don’t need when shopping with friends. Consider a return trip for a purchase to allow yourself time to consider whether it is an item you truly need.

Distractions

Keeping up with new friends — be it venturing to downtown Kent's shops and eateries, finding the food truck or best dining halls on campus together, or stocking up on Kent State gear — can get pricey. Take time to check your balances before you get into trouble and have to phone home!
