Financial Literacy Resources



Did you know that as a UNC student that you have access to CashCourse?

CashCourse is an online financial education resource designed specifically for college and university students. The program takes a whole-life approach to personal finance, with resources divided into six main areas of learning:

  • Earn: Estimate financial effects of current and future employment.
  • Save and Invest: Grow personal assets to build savings and financial security.
  • Protect: Protect financial resources, personal property and identity.
  • Spend: Manage cash flow to meet financial goals and navigate financial obstacles.
  • Borrow: Control personal credit and debt.
  • Pay for Education: Create and implement a strategy for funding higher education.


CashCourse® was developed by the nonprofit National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE). From 2007 to 2021, NEFE provided CashCourse® to students and educators as part of its mission to champion effective financial education. CashCourse® was acquired by Indiana University and managed by the Higher Education Financial Wellness Alliance beginning in 2021.
