Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy is defined as the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being. At The University of Scranton, we believe that developing a better understanding of financial concepts is part of well-rounded college experience.

The University of Scranton has teamed up with Inceptia to give you a leg up on financial education via their online program, Financial Avenue. With Financial Avenue, the idea is to provide you with smart resources to help demystify the world of personal finance. The tools, resources and information, will help you to navigate financial decisions, while you are in school and after you graduate.
