Financial Literacy – Seminar offered by Financial Aid

Financial literacy is more than

  • balancing your check book every month
  • keeping your credit at a manageable level
  • minimizing the amount of student loan debt that you incur while pursuing your college degree

According to’s Oct 2011 article titled “Dollars and Sense” financial literacy is a major part of a student’s overall well being. As with physical wellness, there are healthy steps that we can take to assure our financial wellness.

The Office of Financial Aid at Michigan Tech is offering informational sessions touching on four major areas of financial literacy: budgeting, credit, financial aid and long term saving.  Our goal is to improve students’ understanding of what it takes to enjoy a lifetime of financial wellness.

Attend a seminar on Tuesday, March 26th from 4-5-pm to learn more.  Please register online to reserve a seat and receive confirmation of the location.
