Lafayette College looks to empower students and families in making informed financial decisions prior, during, and after their time at Lafayette.
LAFinancial is a financial literacy program established in 2016. LAFinancial offers resources which will help students create a goal driven financial process by becoming familiar with their personal finance, financing their education, and planning for the future. The financial literacy initiative currently offers students online resources, one-on-one meetings, and presentations/workshops.
CashCourse is an online financial education resource and money management website available 24/7 to students. The program is designed to help students build the financial skills they need to get through college and prepare for future financial decisions. Students are encouraged to register and complete the CashCourse resources.
These appointments will take place with our Financial Wellness Consultant. You will have the opportunity to create a financial plan to achieve your goals during your time at Lafayette College. Within this meeting, you will also be asked to develop goals for your future. In addition, you will be asked to create next steps that you can take in moving towards your goals.
