K-State offering free financial workshops for all students
Kansas State University is offering free financial workshops for all students to help build financial skills and enhance financial well-being.
K-State students who participated in the spring 2022 American College Health Association National College Health Assessment indicated finances was a top 3 stressor for them. Please inform all students of these workshops on the following topics for spring 2023 semester:
- Budgeting — gain methods and tools needed to reach financial goals.
- Credit and student loans — understand the advantages and disadvantages of credit, how to improve your credit score and how to navigate student loan decisions.
- Money beliefs — determine who and what influences your money beliefs to help you overcome financial stress and build financial resilience.
Students have the option to sign up in OrgCentral to either attend workshops in person or to participate in an online Canvas course with sign-up instructions found on the Powercat Financial website.
In-person workshops are eligible for Cat Trax credit via the OrgCentral platform upon completion of a postworkshop reflection survey.
As part of all the Building Financial Well-being workshops, students will schedule an appointment with Powercat Financial for a free college financial planning session, which has been shown to reduce financial stress and positively impact student loan borrowing.
