We think financial literacy is SO important! Financial literacy can help you make responsible decisions for the future. Your future self will thank you. Our students will have to manage their money in the future through retirement accounts, student loan repayment, applying for a car or home loan, etc. We pride ourselves in teaching students the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful. Our students think financial literacy is important, too! One student said "I like being able to share my experiences with others and discuss why these financial literacy topics are important to our lives.” 

All incoming freshmen students are required to complete financial literacy training. Students can complete this requirement through an in-person class, Live Like a Student, or online through Panther CashCourse.
