Minnesota State University Student Association Receives Financial Literacy Grant from Higher One

Student Leaders Focus On a Bright Financial Future

[Saint Paul, MN – December 12, 2013] — Higher One Holdings, Inc., a leader in providing financial services and data analytics to more than 1,600 college and university campuses and approximately 13 million college students across the U.S., is pleased to announce the Minnesota State University Student Association (MSUSA) as a recipient of its Financial Literacy Counts grant.  MSUSA is uniquely positioned as the only student association to receive this award, with the ability to reach seven campuses through its coordinated efforts and student representatives.

MSUSA will allocate the $8,000 grant towards a money management effort that will potentially reach more than 70,000 students in Minnesota.  Funding from the grant will sustain a student awareness campaign to include a website dedicated to financial literacy as well as interactive questionnaires, surveys, webinars, presentations and programming.  While MSUSA has spent years focused on tuition and financial aid advocacy efforts at the local, state and federal levels, it recognizes a growing concern around student debt and other important financial decisions students make during their college years.

"Our financial literacy program will go beyond our current advocacy work by enabling MSUSA to create an educational campaign that will encourage students to consider financial decisions carefully, as well as provide the information and tools they need when making decisions that will impact them now and in the future," said Shannah Mulvihill, MSUSA Director of Development & Programs.  "We are grateful to Higher One for its support of this important work."

Before Higher One, our students only had one way to get their refunds, and that was by paper check. With Higher One processing refunds for us, it has allowed us to provide more options for our students without having to enter and store student banking information. We also no longer have to handle sorting, stuffing and mailing thousands of checks.Suzanne ClaggettUniversity of West Florida
