Academic Impressions - Comprehensive Financial Literacy to Improve Retention and Reduce Default

Overview

Learn how to create a financial literacy program that spans the student lifecycle and leads to improved retention and lower default rates.

Students withdrawing from college often cite financial problems as the number one reason for dropping out. These students default on repaying their student loans more often than those who graduate. With retention rates dropping and default rates rising, many schools are making financial education efforts a top priority. Schools whose programs have a meaningful impact are those teaching beyond the basics of tuition costs and payment. 

Join us in Kansas City to learn a comprehensive, holistic approach to financial literacy programming. Our expert instructors will walk you through key concerns at each phase of the traditional, campus-based student lifecycle; they will also address considerations relating to special populations—such as transfer, online, first-generation, non-traditional, and international students—as well as compliance.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

We recognize financial literacy programming can be housed in different departments on campus, if it exists at all.  As such, this conference is designed to help you improve the effectiveness of your existing or fledgling financial literacy programming, thereby improving your student retention and loan default rates. We invite the following professionals:

Financial aid professionals

Registrars and bursars

Retention specialists

At-risk student program directors, assistant directors, and coordinators

Peer mentor program directors, assistant directors, and coordinators

Residential life programming professionals

Professionals responsible for student wellness initiatives

First-year student seminars and programming directors, assistant directors, and coordinators

Orientation directors, assistant directors, and coordinators

We further recognize that traditional and non-traditional students have different needs regarding financial literacy. While non-traditional students’ needs are considered in some detail, they are not the focus of this program.
