Question 5 gallon water change questions!

I'll be taking my 10 gal (divided) and my 5 gal tanks with me to college and I'm wondering how often I should do water changes in my 5 gal since I haven't used it in a long time. At the moment it will not be divided but there is a good possibility in the future it may be (since I'll have a Petco nearby!). It will be heated and filtered with a 10 gal whisper internal filter and will have live plants. How often should I do a water change and what percent? Thanks!

Once the nitrogen cycle has established and along with the live plants....50% weekly with light vacuum in all areas that can be reached without moving anything or disruption of plant roots....
