UI Financial Literacy Campus Resources

Everyone likes to think they won't make mistakes with their money; however, making unwise decisions about managing money now could have a negative impact on future financial situations.

UI Financial Literacy Services is a new program offered by the Office of Student Financial Aid for undergraduate students.  Information and support is provided to assist students in managing finances, reducing student loan borrowing, and understanding loan repayment options.

The on-line course, Managing Your Money, introduces basic concepts and practices of money management as well as prevention of financial problems commonly associated with college life, including credit and student loans. Register for this one-hour on-line course (407:008 Managing Your Money) on ISIS.
