Financial Wellness

Finances can be a source of stress for many students, but they don't have to be! There are steps that students can take to manage their finances and alleviate financial stress.

First and foremost, creating a budget is essential. This means listing all income and expenses and being mindful of where money is going. It's important to prioritize necessary expenses, such as rent and groceries, and cut back on unnecessary expenses.

Another way to manage financial stress is to look for resources available on campus. UNC offers financial literacy workshops, online financial education curriculum, and events to help support students. It's also important to research and apply for scholarships, grants, and other financial aid opportunities.

Lastly, it's important to start planning for the future. This means saving money and creating a plan for paying off student loans after graduation. It may seem daunting, but creating a plan and taking small steps towards financial wellness can lead to a more secure and stress-free future.

Remember, managing finances and alleviating financial stress is a journey, and it's never too late to start taking steps towards financial wellness.
