Student Financial Education Center

Equipping students with the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed with money in college and beyond.

Who We Are

A limited income can make it difficult to pay for all the expenses you encounter in college. We get it – we’re students too! That’s why we created the SFEC – to help students like yourself better understand your savings, expenses, and debt while providing resources for you to create a plan and stay on track for your financial goals.

Whether you need some help planning to pay for school or just want to make sure you have enough funds to buy your coffee every day, we’re here to help!

What We Do

Because every students’ situation is unique, we encourage you to schedule a free, in-person, 30-minute meeting with one of our Peer Educators - a student like yourself who’s been trained to help educate and develop a plan for your financial success. You can also ask us questions via email by using the form linked below.
