A report, Opportunities to Improve the Financial Well-being of Postsecondary Students, has been prepared by the Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC) and describes the state of financial education among postsecondary students.  The report describes current efforts to enhance financial education in a number of institutions with regards to student understanding of financial aid and financial education topics at two critical junctures:

  • Choosing Where to Go and How to Finance Postsecondary Education; and
  • Making Sound Financial Decisions When Enrolled and Beyond.

The full report can be found here.
