As you navigate your student experience at the University of Houston, it’s important to stay on top of your finances. From budgeting and banking basics, to understanding credit scores and student loan repayment, learning about personal finance can assist you in making the best decisions for your finances and your future.
Although it can be overwhelming to dive into learning more about financial literacy and how it relates to you, that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. That’s why we’ve partnered with Our Money Matters to provide the financial education platform iGrad—free of use to the entire campus community.
