With the current issue of student debt facing college students in the 21st century, it’s helpful to know that K-State offers free and beneficial financial education and help. Here are the top three FREE services that you may be interested in:
1. We offer free financial workshops on a variety of topics such as transitioning into work and understanding employee benefits, managing student loan repayment, budgeting and saving, etc. These workshops can be requested via our website at http://www.k-state.edu/pfc/services/presentations/. If you don’t want a full 45 minute workshop, but would just like a brief 10 minute “infomercial” about PFC services for your class, you also can indicate that in this online presentation request form.
2. We offer free one-on-one individual financial counseling services, where we assist students in reviewing their personal financial questions and concerns such as: creating a spending plan, assisting in the college financial planning and student loan management process, reviewing current student loans and discussing student loan repayment strategies, reviewing a credit report and educating on proper use of credit. These client sessions can be requested by students in iSIS by using the link on our website at http://www.k-state.edu/pfc/services/.
3. We offer a free online financial tool to all current students and alumni of K-State called SALT (created by a company called American Student Assistance) where you have access to: search engines for scholarships, internships and jobs; a loan navigator tool to run repayment calculations and recommendations for your loans; videos and tutorial on a variety of career and financial topics PLUS MUCH MORE. Students or alumni only need to sign up and activate their free SALT account by registering at www.Saltmoney.org/K-State to take advantage of these free financial resources. SALT will not sell you anything and it is truly FREE paid for by Powercat Financial Counseling.
