Money Management

What is Money Management

Money management (or financial literacy as it is sometimes referred to) is defined as "the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being." 

     -President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy (2008)

Money management is an on-going, life-skill - requiring us to take on new information, challenge our current and past behaviors and develop new financial skills to help meet academic and financial goals.  Our money management mission at FRCC is to create a strong foundation of the basics of money management.  Our outreach, coaching and educational resources are focused on empowering our FRCC students with knowledge, tools, and confidence to make strong financial (and academic) decisions while at FRCC and in the future.
