St. Olaf College strives to help provide the necessary resources for each student to become prepared for life after college and that includes providing educational opportunities on financial literacy and well-being.
Financial literacy is the cognitive understanding of financial components and skills such as budgeting, investing, borrowing, taxation, and personal financial management. Financial well-being involves the process of learning. Taking control of your financial wellness promotes knowledge, independence, responsibility, and awareness for planned and unplanned costs. A balanced financial practice involves taking steps to live within your financial means and managing your resources by thinking short and long-term.
Use this website was created to gather resources related to both financial literacy and financial stress. This is not personal finance advice.
