Financial Literacy is the ability to utilize knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for lifetime financial security. It is a life-long process requiring both academic and practical components, and a way for students to learn about managing money as they transition from college to an independent lifestyle. Fontbonne University is committed to promoting financial literacy through our new comprehensive website for students. It's designed to help students understand the difference between practical and damaging financial decisions, and how they could impact the ability to reach personal and professional objectives. Student indebtedness continues to be a serious burden facing college students. Therefore, the need to address this issue is vital and we are excited to offer this service.
In addition to the resources offered on this website, Financial-aid Administrators will send monthly emails to Fontbonne students on a variety of topics ranging from understanding credit basics, personal finance, identity theft, etc.
