We help you find and use financial resources; work on ways to effectively pay for college; research loans and scholarships; and prepare for financial independence after college.
Our goal is to get you thinking ahead and thinking long term about finances. Our services can include one-on-one sessions, small-group meetings or workshops.
It’s not just finding resources for college that we focus on, but we also want to ensure you are ready for what life brings after Alma. What does it take to build a good credit score? How do you qualify for a mortgage? When should you get a credit card, and should you pay off the balance every month? We’re here to help you learn the answers to these questions and more—you’ll be a financial whiz by the time you graduate!
We are available to come to your classroom and share information regarding most financial topics such as budgeting, realizing and shaping good spending habits, learning about a credit report and credit scores, learning about bank accounts and how to use them, and identity theft. These presentations can be short and brief or more intense and hands-on to include class activities.
