Financial Wellness

Do you have a good understanding of your financial situation? Does your financial aid last for the entire semester? Does just thinking about money cause you to break out in a cold sweat?

A recent survey of Sacramento State students found that approximately 75% of our students are stressed about their personal finances. Nearly 72% worry about having enough money to pay for school, and more than half are worried about paying their current monthly expenses. Money is one of life’s biggest stressors. Add to that the academic demands, social pressures, and work responsibilities of a college student, and it can be overwhelming.

Our goal is to create a safe space on campus where students can attend workshops, ask questions and gain a better understanding of all things financial, from budgeting basics to negotiating a salary. By creating a dynamic program, we can provide you with the financial knowledge to ensure your success now and after graduation.
