College is a time of new found freedom for many students. That can spell trouble if that freedom applies to personal finances, too. Students need to understand basic money management skills such as living within a budget and handling credit and debt. A solid financial foundation can lead to a lifetime of financial success.
To help you build that solid financial foundation Holyoke Community College is providing SALT, a new membership program, as a gift to all students. SALT will help you take charge of your finances, look for jobs and internships, access exclusive discounts and deals, and understand loan repayment options if you have student loans. Plus, it will always be free to our students. Always.
Student loans can be confusing for students. There are many different types of loans and it can be overwhelming to determine what kind of loan is best for you to borrow. Also, once in repayment, there are many options for repayment plans and consolidation.
As part of an initiative to ensure that Holyoke Community College students are financially literate for their lifetime, Holyoke Community College has partnered with American Student Assistance to create a free debt management and financial education program for our current students, as well as our alumni. This new product is called SALT.
