Financial Literacy

The Student Financial Services Office is committed to helping students. "Once students are in college, financial literacy plays a significant role in their social and academic success.  Financial literacy is a life skill, a requisite to citizenship, a critical intellectual competency, and an essential component of a student’s success in college." (Kezar & Yang, 2010).

By preparing students with the necessary life skills to effectively manage their finances while in college, we not only add value to their education experience but we accomplish the university mission (paraphrased)

to a commitment to student success within a diverse, supportive campus culture.
