Adjusting to life after college can be a challenge at first. You now have to start living independently which includes budgeting for life using your own resources (your salary). You will no longer have financial aid disbursements or refunds and, for some students, no more financial assistance from parents. Although this can seem daunting, you can make adjustments to lifestyle to live within your means.

Resources like Texas Reality Check can help you determine your financial situation. You may also wish to use a budget calculator.
