Get a Head Start on Your Financial Future

 

At the Financial Wellness Center, our goal is to help you gain the confidence and knowledge you need to make smart financial decisions during and after college. We want you to get a head start on your future.

 

We're Here to Help

Many students have little to no financial experience after graduation. It can take five to seven years for graduates to build credit, make sound money habits, and invest in their futures. The Financial Wellness Center exists to get you financially prepared before you take your next steps off campus. Interact with educators online, attend upcoming events, and/or schedule an individual coaching appointment to start tackling your finances. We want to make your transition into the real world as smooth as possible.
