Everyone can benefit

Knowing how to manage your money better

From managing debt to preparing for your first major purchases and everything in between, our trained staff is ready to help through one-on-one coaching, group presentations, and workshops. Our free and confidential services are designed to help you improve your financial wellness.

While we cover some of the same topics as Student Financial Aid and the Cashier’s Office, we do not provide those specific services. Please visit their respective pages to learn more about how they can assist you.

Inclusive – Money and personal finance is indifferent to human differences. We promise to provide high quality financial counseling regardless of race, gender identification, religion, nationality, disability, or sexual preference.
Accessible – We promise to provide only the most up-to-date, relevant resources in an easily accessible format to the customer.
Nurturing – Financial capability is not just what you know, but whether you have the willingness, confidence, and opportunity to act. We promise to not only provide you with knowledge, but to help you in your journey to financial capability.
Well-trained – Staff and student peer counselors are chosen due to their academic knowledge of counseling and personal finance. All customer facing counselors must first complete a rigorous training program.
Confidentiality – We promise to safeguard information to the best of our ability using only university approved student data management systems abiding by applicable federal and university rules and regulations along with industry standards. Referrals and sharing of information will only happen with the customers’ consent.
