April is Financial Literacy Month!

Do you know what to do if you can’t afford life’s necessities? How about why your credit score is important? What about handling issues repaying your student loans?

As part of Financial Literacy month, Moraine Park Technical College encourages you to learn more about your personal financial situation using some of the great resources that the College provides.  There will be displays and events all month long!  Stop at any campus library to pick up some financial goodies (and maybe a treat or two!)  Check out the MPTC library materials on personal finance.   Be on the look out for some stress-busting and financial-knowledge-boosting activities around campus including a Scavenger Hunt contest!

What about SALT?!  Give your financial health a check up with SALT’s online financial diagnosis tool.
