Financial Literacy Resources

Successfully managing default rates requires providing financial literacy resources.

Sadly, with students today, the data shows that we must assume the majority are financially illiterate. For those of us working with students, it is not surprising that students now entering college or a vocational training program:

1. Will require some assistance with student loans to complete their education

2. Did not receive adequate financial literacy education at home or in high school
