Financial Literacy: Nelnet Provides Two More Tools for your Students

August 25, 2011

Money… we all need it.  We all want it.  We all like to spend it.  Not all of us do a good job of managing it.  Money is one of the rarities for the college student. Yet every time a student turns around, it seems they need (or want) more when they probably have less.    It is the critical time to learn the lessons of a budget.  Unfortunately and more often than not, money management is a lesson learned a tad too late for these “real world rookies”.  With new responsibility and freedom, students have to make very important decisions and choices on how to spend their money.  Without consistent money management practices, students will find it difficult to reach their financial goals. 

Located in the Financial Literacy PDF section on Nelnet’s website for schools, you will find two tools for your students that provide strategies and tips for managing and saving money:

FINANCIAL TIPS:   Managing Your Money: 9 Tips to Achieving Financial Wellness

BUDGET STRATEGIESStrategies to Save Money

Schools have the ability to choose from black/white or color versions to print.  On the bottom of the sheets, as with all of our financial literacy .PDF tools, we have left a section editable so that you can add your own messaging, website, contact info, office hours, etc.  

You can also help your students get smart about money by promoting the Money Mondays webinar series on campus.  Go to, or contact your Regional Director for details.  We hope that you find these tools helpful in your mission of providing financial literacy to your students!
