Student and Family Resources

Whether you are a single parent, grandparent raising a grandchild, blended family, or just a mother and father looking for help, there are plenty of resources out there for you.
 
A recent study found that over half (study estimated 70%) of Americans are effectively financially illiterate. Which probably isn’t surprising given the fact that many young people are never taught basic financial concepts. For example, only about 20 states require a personal finance class for high school students. So, in an effort to be a part of the solution, we have uploaded a series of guides designed for students and parents that give practical advice on developing and building upon healthy financial habits throughout one's life as well as a comprehensive handbook on credit.

You can see the guides here:
