Financial Literacy

What is Financial Literacy?

Pace University is committed to providing all students with the tools and resources they need to be successful while at Pace and beyond. We believe Financial Literacy is the foundation for that success and should be part of your everyday life.

Financial Literacy, in short, is having the knowledge to make smart decisions with money. This includes knowing how to budget, save, understand loan terms, and much more.

How is Financial Literacy different from Financial Aid?

Financial aid refers to the specific funding options available to students to assist in paying for college. Financial aid consists of grants, work-study, loans, and scholarships offered to students to help make college affordable.
