Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Literacy Month

The month of April is National Financial Literacy Month. To celebrate, the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships will be coordinating events throughout April.

Students can follow our social media sites for new “Word of the Day” posts to familiarize themselves with financial literacy terms, weekly quotes to take action, and Instagram live sessions for updates on current events, and more!

During the month of April, the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships will hold a weekly scavenger hunt where students can take a 3-question financial literacy quiz and enter themselves into a drawing for prizes worth $15 in value! Each Monday, the scavenger hunt will be placed in a new location on campus. Students will scan a QR code on a Financial Literacy Month Poster to take the quiz and winners will be announced via social media each Friday!
