Security Deposit due at signing

I rent to college students, they sign the lease about 6 months in advance. I collect the security deposit at the time they sign the lease.  Now I am accepting applications for the new school year.  A group of students would like to sign the lease but they won't have the security deposit until the  lease starts.  Which is 6 months down the road.  Should I let them sign, or should I just find another party that has the security deposit available.

Find another party that has the money and is ready to go, this is a business and should be treated as such. If you start out lenient you may be taken advantage of later on. Good Luck!
