WSU launches student financial literacy program

From staff reports

WSU has created a new program in an effort to help students make informed financial decisions before, during and after college.

The Cougar Money Management Program provides access to free financial literacy training, personal finance education and resources for scholarships, internships and loan repayment.

The program will work in conjunction with SALT, an online financial literacy program hosted by the nonprofit American Student Assistance. WSU has purchased SALT membership, which is available at no cost to students, staff, faculty and alumni.

“It’s free for students, and it’s free for life,” said Chio Flores, the assistant dean of students who oversees the program.

Flores said about 3,800 people, mostly students and alumni, are registered under the university’s SALT membership.
