Financial Literacy Center


The Financial Literacy Center (FLC) exists to provide personal finance and money management education to UW-W students and the campus community. Free coaching session appointments are available and encouraged for you to obtain a better understanding of their personal finances. Whether you want to create a budget, learn to build and manage credit, make a plan to pay for your education, or understand student loan repayment, the FLC is here to provide financial information and resources during your time at UW-Whitewater.

Recently, the FLC published Being Money Smart at UW-W for students to obtain money smart tips while attending UW-Whitewater. Click on the link for over 55 pages of money management tips from other UW-W students on topics like employment, food, housing, transportation, financial basics, and more. In addition, if you have helpful hints to add, be sure to comment, and the Peer Financial Educators will review for addition to the guide.

Last spring, the FLC collaborated with CLD and Financial Aid to develop a guide for our graduating students. Check out the Guide for Warhawk Graduates: Career & Financial Tips to Help You Succeed
