Would you like to learn about creating a spending plan, the link between an academic plan and the total cost of college, improving your credit score, how your personal money philosophy influences your money choices, and much, much more? Now more than ever, it is important that students are educated about financial matters. Take control of your finances by checking out Financial Avenue.
Financial Avenue offers seven free, on-line courses in financial literacy:
Psychology of Money
You need to understand the way your own mind works before you can train it to do the things you want - in this case, to make wise choices with your money. This course is intended to start you off on the right foot to financial wellness by telling you how you can make good decisions instead of just telling you that you should make them.
Foundations of Money
Whether you're just getting started learning about money management, or a bit more experienced, it's smart to have a grasp on the basics. This course gives you a solid foundation in money management.
College and Money
College is a big investment but it can pay off over time. This course will show you how to tip the "cost of college scale" in your favor. We'll teach you how to examine all the costs of college, how to make sure you're getting the most out of your financial aid options, and how to create an academic plan to help keep your costs down and keep moving forward in your program.
Filling out and submitting the FAFSA is one of the key steps in getting financial aid for college. This course gives you all the FASFA knowledge you need to take care of this important step. Bottom line, you'll never know what money is out there for you unless you apply.
For many of us, student loans aren't optional. But they can quickly turn into a scary tangle of debt, stress, and confusion. This course helps make things easy and gives you a clear understanding of how loans work, and how to manage and pay them off without stress.
Earning more money is the main reason you're in school, right? You might learn a lot in class about what you can do with your degree, but it's just as important to know about planning your career, smart ways to apply for a new job, and how to make the most of your work. Knowing what affects the amount of money you take home is key to comparing job offers, making purchasing decisions, and creating a spending plan. This course will help you align your career goals with your financial goals.
Credit and Protecting Your Money
You've heard about how important knowing your credit score is, right? Your credit score and credit history form the basis for what we call your financial story. This courses helps you get the dirt on your financial story and credit history, investigate how you can change your financial story and credit history, and protect your financial information from identify theft and consumer fraud.
The courses are free, and there is NO completion requirement. You can take as few courses as you want or as many as you want, and they can be taken in any order.
