SUNY Oneonta is one of 15 colleges and universities across the country selected to receive funding for financial literacy programming through the Higher One Financial Literacy Counts grants program. The grant will allow the college to expand efforts to help students and their families better understand and navigate the education loan process, from application through repayment.

Last spring, about 80 students learned about budgeting and personal money management during “Making Cent$ of Life After College,” the first in a series of interactive financial literacy events planned by the college’s Office of Student Accounts with input and collaboration from student leaders. A similar program from 2 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, in the Hunt Union Ballroom is expected to draw at least 300 students.
