Ten Principles of Financial Literacy

Why do we have to care about financial literacy? As a college student, isn’t it more important to focus on academic performance? Although studying hard is your responsibility to ensure student success, simply studying hard and earning a degree does not guarantee your success after graduation. More importantly, making money does not automatically translate into your financial freedom and wellness. Instead, regardless of how much money you make, you must learn how to manage your money effectively, and that is the goal of building financial literacy.

In the Ten Principals of Financial Literacy self-study module, you will learn the fundamental principles of financial literacy and how to apply them in your situation: earning, saving & investing, spending, borrowing, and protecting.
