Goal Setting

What is Goal Setting?

Financial literacy includes more than understanding how money works. It includes knowing what you want to do with your money. Goals are steps to achieve your dreams.

Students should calculate their financial needs and borrow less than the maximum allowed, if possible, to reduce student loan debt. 

Smart Goals. Specific by planning effectively. Measurable to be able to track progress. Attainable goals are realistic. Relevant goes ensure the goal serves a purpose. Time provides a deadline.
