It is important to be an educated consumer in order to make the decisions that are right for you. Obtaining a college degree is sometimes financially challenging and borrowing money is a serious decision. The goal of the UTTC Financial Literacy Program is to provide students with the information and tools to make informed decisions regarding budgeting, credit cards, personal finances and debt management so that you are making informed and responsible decisions that build a solid foundation for your future.
Financial Literacy provides students and parents with information regarding the importance of financial planning, managing your money, and understanding debt.
