Advice
Saving for College
As you get ready to leave for college, your financial needs will change. With Veridian, you can remain a member even after you move away. Services like Mobile Check Deposit and Online Banking allow you to keep track of your accounts no matter where you end up.

Resources for students

  • The first step to financial independence is living within your means. Build a budget to determine how much you can spend each month, and how much you'll need to reserve for necessities - like rent and pizza.
  • Every student enrolling in college is eligible for some amount of federal subsidized student loans. Visit the Direct Loans website for more information and resources.
  • If you've exhausted subsidized loans and still need more options, Veridian offers a private student loan program to supplement your federal, state, and institutional financial aid.
  • If you've determined your budget and know you'll need more than what you've received as part of your college award letter, investigate private student loan options. Some may require a co-signer.

Resources for parents

  • Just starting to save? You've got options. Be sure to consider a 529 plan.
  • If you'll be co-signing on a loan for your student, learn how it may impact your credit and your student's credit.
  • If you'll be fully or partially funding your student's journey, a Home Equity Loan may help. Low rates and possible tax benefits make it an attractive option.
  • To qualify for federal student aid, file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). File early as some funds are given out on a first-come-first-serve basis. Make sure to file your taxes right away.
