Financial Literacy


Aside from managing your academic life, another challenge is learning to manage your expenses, however limited, and to borrow and use credit wisely.

SFS wants to develop financially-literate students and to prepare them for financial management for life. Our program provides students with a series of presentations, workshops, and online resources related to all aspects of personal financial management.

Topics include personal budgeting, managing debt, evaluating your paycheck, types of insurance/retirement options, understanding your credit score, home buying, filing your income taxes and traveling on a shoestring budget.

Please visit Presentations and Events for other upcoming event dates and times.


Outside Financial Literacy Resources

Grad Sense, created by The Council of Graduate Schools, is a great resource tailored solely to graduate and professional student needs. Helpful tools provided by Grad Sense include budgeting, student loan repayment, and how to avoid financial pitfalls once you graduate.
