Show Them The Money: Advancing The Financial Literacy Of College Students With An Award-Winning Program
No matter a university’s or college’s history, organizational structure, demographics, or mission, students are facing rising dependence on credit and escalating student loan debt to fund their education without adequate knowledge, guidance, or education. As student affairs practitioners, we must support the education of all college students by establishing a culture of financial empowerment on campuses throughout our nation.

The program helps all students, from traditional to distance learners, learn how to establish and manage credit, create a financial survival plan for college, understand their credit reports and scores, and more. Participants will learn how they can begin to implement an award-winning program on their campus.
