Financial Literacy

IU Office of Financial Literacy

Indiana University’s Office of Financial Literacy has been established to assist students in making informed financial decisions before, during, and after college.

The goal is to provide you with information that will expand your financial literacy so you can make smart decisions throughout life. We plan to provide you with tools, resources, and information to assist in your financial decision making.

The university has developed many resources to assist you in attaining your degree. The Offices of Financial Aid at each campus should be the first stop for any student needing help paying for college.

The faculty and staff of Indiana University are also committed to student success and can be a resource for you when seeking assistance.
