Personal and family budgeting; Understanding credit building principles to meet long-term and short-term goals (e.g., loan to debt ratio, credit scoring, negative impacts on credit scores);
Cost planning for postsecondary or post-baccalaureate education (e.g., spending, saving, personal budgeting);
College cost of attendance (e.g., public vs. private, tuition vs. fees, personal costs);
Financial assistance (e.g., searches, application processes, and differences between private and government loans, assistanceships).
