Financial Literacy

  

Helping you Prepare for Life

We want financial literacy to be a part of your Canisius experience. Your overall health is important to us, and we have focused our resources on providing support and education in many areas of personal health—including financial understanding— for all students.

The more you know, and the more tools you have at your disposal, the better prepared you will be for life at and beyond Canisius.

 

The Form Your Future campaign website provides helpful free resources to volunteers and educators who want to provide one-on-one assistance on completing the FAFSA to students and their families, as well as ideas on how to spread the word and get others involved in the effort to encourage millions of students nationwide to apply for financial aid. 

Form Your Future
