Financial Literacy

The Office of Student Financial Services invites you to attend one or more of the following scheduled Financial Literacy sessions. These sessions were designed just for you. Learn and discuss how decisions you make today, can affect you many years after you graduate, especially the amount you borrow in student loans.  Additionally, you will get a closer look and deeper understanding of the importance of a budget, student loan management and strategies for finding the best repayment plan to fit your needs.  Short on time, then go directly to the video section to access various financial literacy topics.

Please remember that individual counseling is available and encouraged.  To schedule an individual session with a Financial Aid Counselor, please call the Financial Aid Office at 713-500-3860 or email us at
