Affordable Choice, Unbeatable Value - Financial Aid

Literacy In Financing your Education

Mission Statement:

To use ‘real life’ scenarios in order to help students develop an understanding of how to successfully manage their money and finance their education

MSU Real L.I.F.E.

The Office of Student Financial Aid has developed the MSU Real LIFE experience to better connect with students, answer their questions about financial aid, and teach them successful money management skills.  MSU Real LIFE plans to team up with organizations across campus to offer valuable presentations on budgeting, student loans, and credit, to create a website and videos to help answer students’ questions about financial aid, and to form a team of four peer financial counselors to meet with students one-on-one to help students’ individual financial questions.
