Our friends in the Office of First-Year Experience produced this “wordle” chart (2012), based upon responses from parents and students, clearly showing that when it comes to concerns for our college-bound sons and daughters, one of our greatest worries is “Finances.”
The Academic Support Office also confirms that one reason students struggle academically is worry and distraction over financial concerns.
In the BYU Financial Fitness Center, it is our mission to help each student to wisely assume responsibility for their own financial well-being. We serve as a trusted resource for financial guidance and information, and help students to acquire and refine financial management skills. We can help students pay for school, avoid debt, and take charge of their finances.
