Happy New Year
Make 2014 Your Best Year Yet!
A new year is finally here, but it will only be as great as you make it. With our help you have the whole world at your fingertips - don’t just sit back and watch another year go by waiting for life to happen, make 2014 your best year yet!

Resolution #1: Save on Your Insurance
Make your first resolution for the new year to save money, and what better way to start than with your international student health insurance plan. With the cost of healthcare and group insurance plans continuing to increase, purchasing an alternative student insurance plan can in some cases save you up to $800 or more!
The Student Secure plan starts are just $29 per month and comes in three plan levels to suit every need. You can also search your school's insurance requirement on our site to see which plan level you will need to purchase, or you can simply give us a call at (877) 758 - 4391 and we will help you right over the phone!!

Google Hangout On Air: Learn How to Get a Scholarship
On Thursday, January 21st at 10:00 am EST we will host and present a Google Hangout all about helping you to find and earn a scholarship. Three of our financial aid representatives will be available to help you through the process from how to find scholarships, where to look, and what you need to have to be considered. We will be available for any questions you have to help you on your way to studying abroad.

Ask an International Student Advisor
The new year is here, bringing with it our new Student Advisor: Ismail Warsame! Ismail advises international students at Oregon State University on immigration regulations, academic, personal, financial, social, and cross-cultural issues. In addition, he is involved in conducting various workshops for international students and takes part in the new student orientations.

If you missed all the good advice from last month's Student Advisor, Maria Frigge, from Troy University, it's not too late to go back and see what she had to say. Thank you for your guidance Maria!

Study in the USA Money Matters
Financing an education in the USA is not an easy feat, and if you are lucky enough to secure financing the hard part is out of the way. However, once you arrive in the US how do you handle your finances? Opening a new bank account, applying for credit cards - it can be pretty daunting. That is why we have our Money Matters page page to help you navigate the different options available and how to get on the right track!

Get Your Textbooks for the New Semester
With the new term right around the corner, purchase your books now so that you can save hundreds of dollars by avoiding the bookstore. Don’t wait until you show up for class, instead check with your professors to see what books you will be needing. Now, all you need to do is shop for the best price online - and you’ll have plenty of time for your books to arrive before the first day of class. Compare prices to find the best buys or find books to rent.
