Meeting the Financial Literacy Imperative

With the escalating costs of higher education and the rising debt carried by college graduates, schools across the country are grappling with the need to improve the financial literacy of their students. Offering tuition payment plans and federal financial aid options are examples of important steps, but some institutions are taking the financial literacy imperative even further by offering financial literacy programs that include online tutorials, webinars, and planning worksheets for budgets and loan payments. Join this web seminar for valuable tips and a case study from Creighton University.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Examples of policies and practices institutions can take to help students manage money and debt
  • Common misconceptions among students about their education-related financial obligations during and after college
  • How to help students avoid the most common mistakes that can jeopardize their financial future
  • Resources from Nelnet and others that can help schools foster financial literacy among studentsĀ
