Career & Education Path
Students identify skills sets and interests for a variety of careers; explore the positions and salary ranges available within their desired careers; determine the educational requirements necessary to pursue their desired career, & research schools that offer programs that further career objectives.
Comparing Schools & Costs
Students research salary averages based on specific education and career aspirations; learn the total cost of their desired schools(s); compare total post-secondary expenses versus out of school annual salary, & determine a return on investment.
Students explore the different options available to pay for college; review available college loans and how interest accumulation and payback options vary and learn the basics of a FAFSA and where to access additional support in completing an application.
Managing Debt Accumulation
Students learn how student debt accumulation affects one’s financial future and other life goals; learn how to budget to help limit student debt accumulation and spend and save money wisely, and explore options for paying a greater amount of education expenses while in school.
Managing Debt After College
Students take a realistic look at post-college living expenses; understand loan restructuring and consolidation options; create a budget for post-college life that includes student loan payments, and set long-term financial goals that incorporate savings and debt management.
