Pinto, Mary Beth; Parente, Diane H.; Palmer, Todd S.
Journal of College Student Development, v42 n2 p169-72 Mar-Apr 2001
Reports on a study that investigated the effect of a university's solicitation policy on students' acquisition and usage of credit cards. Attempts by universities to limit access to and use of credit cards appear to be ineffective. Suggests alternative policies be constructed around teaching students sound money management skills.
