The Financial Literacy Workshops are mandatory for any student receiving institutional aid.
We welcome and encourage all students to attend these workshops as they will offer guidance in making sound financial decisions.

Institutional aid includes any funding granted to a student by the university. For example: all athletic aid, choir, band, Residence Hall Advisors, Auxiliary, departmental scholarships, etc.

If you plan on receiving this aid for the following year, you must attend four (4) Financial Literacy workshops this academic year to receive the funding the upcoming year.


 

Financial Literacy Series


Spring Line-Up

Attending college presents a unique time in a students’ life where financial literacy education is very important. Our workshops cover a number of important subjects faced by young people who may be living on their own for the first time. The workshops also lay the groundwork for major financial decisions that occur shortly after college graduation – for instance buying a car and managing credit and debt. Other topics covered include budgeting, saving and investing, basics of banking, loan repayment, as well as staying out of default.
