The Financial Wellness Collaborative is a Central Michigan University initiative aimed at assisting students in financial education and wellness.

There are a variety of costs associated with attending college — from student loans and textbooks to housing and utilities — and CMU is dedicated to helping students understand and manage their finances.

This includes everything from how to apply for loans and pay tuition to saving up and spending wisely. True financial awareness also means having an understanding of how the financial decisions students make have an impact on their credit and future finances.
