REPORT CORRELATES ATTITUDES AND RISKY FINANCIAL BEHAVIORS AMONG FIRST-YEAR COLLEGE STUDENTS ACROSS U.S., HIGHLIGHTS INSTITUTIONAL IMPACT

Money Matters on Campus Sounds the Alarm for Augmented, Increased Financial Literacy Education Programing

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 27, 2013—A new report detailing the findings from a survey of 40,000 first-year college students from across the U.S. demonstrates to colleges and universities how student financial problems not only impact individual student outcomes but also the institutional mission.

Money Matters on Campus: How Early Attitudes and Behaviors Affect the Financial Decisions of First-Year College Students identified first-year college students’ attitudes towards debt as well as related financial behaviors to determine what role each plays in student financial outcomes.

The study—conducted by EverFi and sponsored by Higher One—surveyed students on banking, savings, credit cards and school loans. The majority of participants (91.2 percent) were first-year college students (mean age = 18.2 years). One of the many survey findings revealed a strong correlation between incurring early debt and not being affiliated with a banking institution. Further, an increased risk of negative financially related outcomes, as students and later in life, was correlated with current risky financial attitudes/behaviors.

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
