A new survey of college students found 71% are worried about their ability to meet financial obligations after college.

The survey by the Hartford Financial Services Group Inc., Hartford, found 76% of students wish they had more help preparing for their financial future; 47% said their parents have had to bail them out of debt at some time; and 50% expect it will take 2 to 10 years to pay off their student loans.

The Hartford also found that 24% think they are “very well prepared” to deal with the financial challenges that lie ahead.

The Hartford also announced it is bringing its financial education program, Playbook for Life, to 3 campuses this week: the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Wake Forest University and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
