Financial Literacy

Ithaca College believes that assisting our students, faculty, staff, and alumni in obtaining the skills and knowledge necessary to make informed financial decisions in life is of utmost importance.  Our students need to feel confident in understanding financial choices and in planning for the future both while they are in school and when they graduate.

We are pleased to offer, in conjunction with our partner, Inceptia, a free financial literacy course to familiarize our community with financial concepts and strategies.  Covering such topics as loan repayment, budgeting, and money and college, Inceptia offers an enjoyable self-paced course geared towards producing financially savvy individuals.
