Are you familiar with creating a personal budget? Can you balance your checking account? Do you understand how credit cards work? Do you know your FICO score? If you are taking out loans to help pay for college, do you have a plan for managing your debt after you graduate? All of these questions and many more are addressed in “financial literacy” training offered by The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
Each year our office is invited by student organizations to conduct workshops dealing with these issues. Please contact our office if you are part of a group on campus and feel your membership could benefit from a hands-on workshop dealing with your personal finances.
