Financial Wellness: Financing Your Way Through College


Have you ever asked yourself:

  • Can I afford college?
  • Will my degree boost my income when I graduate?
  • Is it worth taking out loans or paying by cash for my degree?

These are questions that need to be asked as you prepare to invest in an education. In short, all questions can be answered in the affirmative and data supports that pursuing an education has long term benefits. But to get there, it is important to think about how you are starting out and where you envision yourself when you finish. These websites on this page are intended to help you think the financial obligations you are committing to and support services to help you navigate them.
