Financial Literacy

As part of Santa Fe College’s mission to provide innovational educational programs and student services, we are launching a Financial Literacy initiative. Students whom participate in the Financial Literacy program will develop the tools and knowledge needed to make sound financial decisions in college and beyond. Below is a link to an online education site, a description of free financial apps, and a portfolio check-up.
