5 Lessons from Our Updated Webinars

May 4, 2016

By now, you’re well aware that our Nelnet resource library contains a ton of great financial literacy resources for both you and your students. We recently updated our content by restocking our virtual shelves in our webinar section. Our library now features 12 updated webinars covering financial literacy topics for students, and professional development topics for financial aid officers.

These webinars include loads of great facts and tips, including:

More recent delinquencies have a greater impact on your credit score. 

Sure, missing a payment is a punch to the gut of your credit score, but did you know that delinquencies from last month hit heavier than those from a year ago? Check out our Personal Finance webinar for more.

Steering clear of the coffee shop can mean big savings.

Sacrificing one specialty coffee per day can save up to $1,460 per year. Factor in those savings over 30 years and… wow!

Think twice before signing up for a store-specific credit card.

Sure, store-specific cards sound great when a store clerk offers 20-percent savings, but those same cards often charge the highest interest rates. Learn more in our Understanding Credit Cards webinar.

Our world is an increasingly mobile one.

As a financial aid officer, it’s helpful to understand your students’ approach to technology. Did you know that 69 percent of iPhone users are more likely to forget their wallet that their iPhone when they leave their home in the morning?

Smiles have more power than you think.

In a face-to-face interaction, individuals interpret much more from body language and tone of voice than the actual words spoken. It’s a valuable thing to remember when interacting with students on a daily basis.
