The Bursar's Office and the Office of Financial Aid are announcing the
creation of a new website designed to empower CU-Boulder students to make
smart financial decisions.
The website, http://www.colorado.edu/bursar/financial_literacy , contains
personal finance articles, links to money management websites, and
CashCourse, a financial education website created by the National Endowment
for Financial Education. In the near future, we will be adding a calendar
of financial training events on campus. We are interested in knowing what
kind of financial workshops students are interested in seeing. If you are a
student, please take a moment to complete this survey,
Our new website is designed to highlight CashCourse, a multi-faceted
resource that provides students with sound, fundamental financial basics.
The site provides budgeting worksheets and spending calculators. In
addition, it offers students unbiased credit card advice and noncommercial
economic survival tips.
The majority of information found in CashCourse is intended to assist
students with saving, spending, and dealing with real-life money matters
typically encountered just before and during their college years.
CashCourse also provides helpful guidelines for making informed decisions
about future concerns including assessing job offers, understanding
insurance plans, becoming tax savvy, and planning for retirement.
We realize that students are making these decisions often for the first time
by themselves, and it is our intention for people to utilize this site, take
advantage of the tools offered, and make well-informed financial decisions.
We hope you find the information useful and we encourage you to share our
site with your students, friends, and colleagues.
