Dollar$ and $ense: What You Need To Know About Money Management



Welcome to Curry College's Financial Literacy homepage.  We are offering this information to you to help you become an educated consumer about topics such as budgeting, credit management, debt management including your student loans, repayment information and financial planning.  Our goal is for you to become familiar with these topics so you can make sound decisions regarding your finances while enrolled at Curry and as well as after graduation.

Attending college can be an exciting time in a student's life.  For many, it is the first time living away from home and being solely responsible for managing certain aspects of one's non-academic life like money management.  While concentrating on academics is a student's primary focus, understanding concepts of finance is also an important part of a student's education.  All too often students graduate from college with little or no understanding on how to manage their finances just at a time when new expenses such as rent, student loan and credit card payments are becoming a reality.

We hope you find the information and additional resources offered to be helpful.
