Financial Literacy & Financial Aid

KatCents Financial Scholars - A new service the Student Money Management Center is providing is KatCents Financial Scholars. KatCents is an interactive and fun way for students to learn real world financial concepts online. It will allow students to move quickly through such topics as saving and budgeting money, understanding credit cards and managing debt, the Federal Reserve and banking, taxes and insurance, and consumer fraud protection. There are a total of nine learning modules which students will complete, including a brief pre- and post-quiz for each module. This is to help determine how much they learned from the modules.
