Depending on how independent (or not) your student is, you may also find yourself assisting and advising with other important decisions such as course of study, accommodations (on campus or off), the all-important decor, and necessary supplies (anything from laptops and printers to pots and pans). By the time you’re ready to send them out the door, you’ve invested a small fortune, not to mention the ENORMOUS amount of time and energy spent just getting them to this point.
The last thing on your mind might be insurance, but it’s an important time to evaluate and update your changing needs to ensure your student is fully protected.
According to an Associated Press article, these are some areas to consider:
AUTO – If your student is attending college more than 100 miles away from home and ISN’T taking a car with them, your insurance premiums will most likely go down. If taking the car is determined a necessity, most insurance companies may offer a Good Student Discount. Either way, it’s important to contact your agent or provider to determine your needs, and to obtain the best rates possible.
