In order to provide important financial information to students on campus, MLC has partnered with CashCourse – a non-profit organization that provides financial education courses. Students have different topics to complete online each year, and the application of these resources helps them make better financial decisions. Last year over 300 students – in small groups or individual consultation – were served with important financial information through the work of MLC’s Financial Literacy Coordinator, JoElyn Krohn.
Each year CashCourse tracks the schools that utilize these resources. Once again, MLC has made the national top 10 list for web engagement and has also been granted the 2018 Reimbursement Program to help promote the CashCourse resources. This spring the financial literacy program will offer monthly drawings to encourage students to increase their financial literacy.
