Financial literacy or the education on the management of personal finances is enormously important.
Did you know that:
- 75% of students are not ready to deal with the financial challenges ahead of them?
- 62% of final year students have 4 credit cards or more?
- Many students are accumulating debt at a record pace—final year students carry an average of $4,100 in credit card debt alone?
As a result, college students need to learn about the many financial products, services, and providers to make sound financial decisions. Decisions you make about handling your finances during college can have a huge impact on your future. Before making major financial decisions, educate yourself about the options at your disposal. Learning and practicing sensible financial behavior or “fiscal fitness” now can lead to a lifetime of financial success.
