Are you financially savvy?

SavÄ“ – financial literacy at Dickinson – hosts events on-campus for students to learn about personal finance. Student volunteers and the program adviser focus on topics that matter to Dickinsonians such as budgeting, student loans, savings, credit, and investing. We’ve partnered with Salt, a free online financial literacy platform, to enhance student access to financial literacy resources.

Financial Awareness Counseling Tool

The Department of Education has made available a Financial Awareness Counseling Tool (FACT). It is an online interactive resource that provides students with basic financial literacy and information about the student's federal student loan debt (and total loan debt if the student enters information about his or her private student loans). The tool estimates what the student's loan debt and repayment amounts are likely to be when the student leaves school. It also provides financial planning tips.
