    We got D15 a Capital One student Visa. It has no annual fee, does not charge a foreign transaction fee if they go abroad (which is why we got D the card), and gives cash back for your purchases (1%) and on-time payments (1/2%). It was super easy to apply for online and it has been really easy to set it up for automatic online payments.

    Make sure you book a room in advance for Move In Day. I didn't book a hotel room last year in time for my daughters move in day and couldn't get a room! The rooms fill up fast so get one while you can. Here's the website I used this year to book one for this year. https://www.alltherooms.com/HS

    I'm a student going to UC Davis in a couple months; I'd like to say thank you to everyone here for all of your tips! Even though I'm not a parent, this forum has helped me think of things I'd never even heard of (like the HIPAA form).
