Financial Aid introduces Shocker Financial Wellness

The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships is excited to launch the Shocker Financial Wellness Workshops for fall 2023.

These workshops will be interactive and led by the peer financial counselors who are trained to reflect the big five of holistic financial wellness as identified by the U.S. Financial Literacy and Education Commission. The topics focus on earning, saving/investing, protecting, spending, and borrowing.

Shocker Financial Wellness is also available for campus presentations in First Year Seminars or with student organizations with groups of 10 or more students. Find the full list of upcoming workshops, and submit a meeting request, online.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to invite students to the first workshop, “Budgeting 101,” from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20 in 142 Rhatigan Student Center. The more sessions students attend this semester, the better their chance to win a full-tuition scholarship for spring 2024.
