Welcome!

Welcome to STATE MAKES $ENSE, the Office of Student Financial Aid's guide to financial literacy!  We're here to help you make sense (get it?) of some important information that can help you plan for your financial future today.  Before we dive in, let's talk about what financial literacy actually is.

Financial literacy is having the knowledge that helps you make strong financial decisions.  Within the STATE MAKES $ENSE program, we focus on four key areas:

1. Budgeting
2. Saving
3. Credit
4. Loan Repayment

Budgeting 
 
  Budgeting is an essential skill that helps you meet your financial goals by managing your income and expenses.
Saving
 
  Saving is setting funds aside to help you plan for the unexpected, fund your dreams, and provide you with financial security.
Credit
 
  Credit helps determine whether you qualify for loans, based on your ability to repay that loan in the future.
Loan Repayment
 
  Knowing your loan repayment options can help you make hte best financial decision when it comes to building the best budget for you.
