What is a Coaching Session?

Coaching sessions are private, confidential sessions in which a student can discuss financial questions and concerns to receive tailored financial education, and collaborate on a unique action plan. We can discuss a wide variety of financial topics with you, depending on what your needs and interests are. The goals of our coaching sessions include: helping students understand their fee statement, assess their financial aid package and refund, reduce their student debt, navigate the process of student loan repayment smoothly, and help students to stay in school.

We do not provide tax assistance, investment advice, or referrals to specific financial institutions.
