Why am I required to attend Financial literacy workshops and meet with a Student Development Coach?

This program has been developed to help you utilize the necessary information, tools, resources, contacts, and services to become more successful in your educational and career pursuits. Financial Literacy provides helpful tips and strategies for college students seeking to improve their knowledge of budgeting, saving and avoiding the pitfalls of poor credit.

Coaching provides staff in the Educational Planning and Counseling Center an opportunity to identify areas of concern for you. If you are a financial aid appeal student, this could include concerns that lead to being placed on appeal such as class attendance, study skills, comprehension, learning disabilities, time management, work and school schedule conflicts, transportation, childcare, social service needs, personal obstacles, educational plans, career exploration, etc.

Please note, you do not need to be a financial aid appeal student to utilize this service in the Educational Planning and Counseling Center. Anyone is welcome to participate in this program. However, if you are on an approved Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) appeal for the first time you will be required to participate in this program. PFE requirements are stated on your appeal contract. If you have any questions or concerns about your PFE requirements, please review your contract or speak with a campus financial aid representative.
