A student’s financial health shapes their ability to achieve academic success, but national research and evidence confirm the link goes both ways. By helping more students receive a higher education, providers can put them on the path to greater financial health, including:
- increased access to opportunity and employment
- increased access to higher income (which eases planning and saving behaviors)
- increased likelihood of general stability via employment opportunities
Having worked closely with innovative community colleges, state universities, and city colleges, the Financial Health Network is well-positioned to support efforts in measuring and improving student financial health. Whether through our Factors for Assessing Student Financial Health framework, or through high-quality product design and delivery of interventions like emergency aid, the Financial Health Network is committed to improving student financial health.
