Financial literacy is the ability to understand and effectively use various financial skills, including personal financial management, budgeting, and investing. It is the foundation of your relationship with money, and it’s a lifelong journey of learning.
Choosing how to pay for your education and invest in your future is often one of the biggest financial decisions you can make. From saving personal funds, to applying for scholarships and borrowing student loans, these decisions will impact you beyond graduation. The more you know, the more prepared you’ll be.
