Student Financial Wellness in a Credit Card World

Webinars LogoDate: Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Time: 2:00 PM ET 
Duration: 90 minutes
Price: $120 members/$240 nonmembers. Free for webinar package purchasers and Value Plus members, but users must register in advance.

Are your graduating students ready to hit the “real world” and manage their finances? James Madison University has been offering a 3 credit hour class to seniors that reviews the affect a personal philosophy on money, influence of societal expectations, and management of personal finances, has on all aspects of life when it comes to securing the “American Dream.” Students learn real life skills in the areas of eliminating debt, creating a budget, understanding investments and insurance, saving money, planning for retirement, shopping for a house, and other topics dealing with financial issues faced in daily life. This is a practical, hands-on, course, opposed to one based solely on theory. Sections are taught in a classroom and on-line environments.

During this webinar we’ll review the course format, hear student success stories, and we may even delve into a bit of education on some of the topics.
