​Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy is a set of skills to help you manage your personal finances.  Students who become financially literate develop a valuable life skill to manage their finances and are more likely to graduate.  
Title V HSI has implemented a Financial Literacy Program which includes a variety of tools to educate and equip you to manage your expenses, debt and credit more effectively.  We will help you to develop an individual plan to meet your educational costs and daily financial challenges.  The tools of financial literacy include handouts, e-mails, workshops, hands on assistance with the FAFSA, and much more.  Do not become another financial statistic, plan to attend these helpful workshops and take control of your financial future!  
Financial Literacy 101 is a free online tool to help students make better money management decisions.  The online program teaches you important financial literacy fundamentals you can learn at your own pace.  The program features a questionnaire which will help you assess your finances and provides a detailed plan on how to set up and meet your financial goals.  Topics covered by Financial Literacy 101 include but are not limited to:
