What is “financial literacy?”

Financial literacy is knowing how to earn, save, borrow, and spend money.
When you are financially literate, you have the knowledge and skills to:

  • earn or make money
  • save money
  • pay for an emergency expense
  • manage money
  • plan for retirement
  • invest money
  • donate money to help others

How can Duck Bills help me become financially literate?

To help students, Duck Bills and the Financial Aid Office offer the following services:

  • In-class presentations on financial aid or financial literacy
  • Free financial literacy workshops on budgeting, financial aid, loans, saving, or debt
  • A website for accessing online financial literacy curriculum
  • Free, personalized, one-on-one financial coaching sessions for scholarship searches, budgeting, saving, debt, and accessing community resources
  • Fun events with prizes
