For more information, please visit: HOW TO HANDLE MONEY MATTERS AS AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT It's a good idea to know how different things work when you're going to a foreign country. In the U.S. international students will realize quickly that people handle money differently than in their home country. In some ways, the U.S. is very contradictory when it comes to financial matters: On one hand, few use cash, depending more on credit and debit cards; on the other hand, many people get paper paychecks and actually still use checks to pay bills for things such as electricity, like I had to at my dorm.
