Student financial literacy efforts tackle the most common personal finance blunders

May 21, 2014
By Sonya Stinson

From managing loans to controlling spending, many college students find themselves dealing with a host of financial responsibilities for the very first time. And it’s not uncommon for them to trip up.

Campus financial literacy programs can help students steer clear of some of their most common financial mistakes. The challenge for educators is to find creative and clever ways to get their attention.

"This key addition to Baseline will not only help students, but also help further institutional goals by enabling academic affairs professionals to show they are doing what it takes to ensure the success of its students," said Eric Reich, senior vice president at Higher One, in a prepared statement.
