Thinking about life after graduation and need some tools? We’ve got your back. Introducing a new workshop just for you!

Life After IU: Setting Up Your Financial Future: The IU Office of Financial Literacy presents a hands-on workshop to help you manage and navigate your income and expenses after graduation. This workshop is tailored to students in the Jacobs School of Music and the School of Education. Our goal is to help you understand where your money is coming from, and where it is going to. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Jacobs School of Music Office of Entrepreneurship and Career Development and the School of Education Career Services Office.

Indiana University's Office of Financial Literary assists students in making informed financial management decisions. This office is dedicated to decreasing or preventing overall student debt and minimizing students' stress related to finances. Along with financial wellness workshops, the Office of Financial literacy offers free one-on-one appointments that focus on developing useful money management habits (budgeting, savings, borrowing/debt, building/establishing credit, identity theft, student loan repayment, preparing for graduation/employment), and preparing for major future decisions.
