International students' interactions with the U.S. financial system begin well before their arrival in the United States, as they make arrangements to transfer funds for tuition, rent, and other living expenses. Even after arriving, however, many students remain unfamiliar with key aspects of the financial system. Poor budgeting and uninformed spending decisions cause financial difficulties for thousands of international students and their families, often interfering with academic progress. This handy resource, freshly revised and updated, illustrates the do's and don'ts of financial management—the definitive handbook for every international student. Revised 2006.
