Additionally, UCF’s Office of Student Financial Assistance established Centsible Knights, a financial literacy program to educate students on the topic. Centsible Knights focuses on enhancing students’ financial knowledge and providing them with resources to make sound financial decisions.
Centsible Knights’ financial literacy program was ranked #19 on LendEDU’s survey “Top 50 College Financial Literacy Programs” around the country. Hundreds of colleges were ranked based on three parameters: (1) Number of Workshops and Resources Available; (2) Access to One-On-One Financial Consultation; (3) Incentivizing Programs Available.
Financial literacy is a broad topic that can consist of many layers. Money and how we manage it influences everyday decisions and more importantly future endeavors. Centsible Knights aims to meet the needs of students in a variety of formats. Your student can utilize online training modules on topics such as: Healthy Spending, Savings Goals, Understanding Earnings, Student Loan Management, Evaluating Credit, Protecting Personal Financial Information, and Planning Investments. Additionally, Centsible Knights coordinates in-person presentations with various campus partners, such as Career Services and FAIRWINDS, to provide additional training for students.
Encourage your students to begin their financial literacy journey now! Visit the Centsible Knights’ website for more information about the upcoming events.
