CCPL Money Monday: Paying for Higher Education

Monday, May 13, 2019

Getting ready to send a student off to college and wondering how you’re going to pay for it? This month’s class is for you.

Are you financially prepared for this expensive adventure? Higher education is a wonderful vehicle for higher wages, if it is carefully planned! Otherwise can lead to incredible debt before careers even begin. In 2015, United States student loan debt has surpassed credit card debt. Do not be a statistic! Learn some strategies to help your student maximize their (and your) resources.

Instructor Michelle Pierce is a University of Wyoming (UW) Community Development Extension Educator for the Northeast area, based in Gillette, WY. Her passion is teaching others how to become financially literate and getting the most out of their time, personal energy, and money. She can be contacted at mrp10@ccgov.net or (307) 682-7281

Did you know that 36% of Americans are considered financial fragile? According to the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), financially fragile is measured by an individual’s ability to cope with unexpected expenses in a short time frame. Specifically, $400 immediately in case of any emergency, and their capacity to get $2,000 in 30 days.

Join us at the CCPL monthly money classes to become an informed consumer! No personal questions or sales pitches, only research-based information from the University of Wyoming. UW does not provide tax, legal, or financial information.
