Student Financial Literacy helps Baylor students understand personal money management to develop the financial knowledge and skills necessary for both current and future financial success. We provide one-on-one coaching and educational opportunities in the following areas:
Paying for College
We work closely with Baylor Student Financial Services (Financial Aid and Student Accounts) to ensure we're presenting students with the best information on grants, scholarships, student loan management, and work study opportunities. We also answer students’ questions about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the financial aid application process.
Managing Money During College
Many college students struggle with managing the money they have today. Others need help finding resources. We work with students to set up spending plans, start emergency funds, use debt wisely to establish a healthy credit history, evaluate employment opportunities, and much more.
Preparing for Financial Life After College
As students move through their studies at Baylor, many questions pop up about what they need to know about personal finances after college. We provide education and resources to help students learn about saving, investing, student loan repayment, cost of living, housing costs, insurance, and employee benefits.
