As we talk with students about their financial needs and circumstances, we realize many do not understand the basic components needed to make positive decisions regarding their financial aid and/or their own personal finances. Often students will defer to their parents before making decisions which in itself is good, however, it is important that students, as well as parents, understand their financial options and the consequences of their decisions. The financial literacy links that follow offer information on valuable life skills, such as budgeting, borrowing, saving, using credit cards, opening bank accounts, managing debt, etc. We hope you will find this information useful.
