Q: How does this support students?
A: In the National Student Financial Wellness Study (http://cssl.osu.edu/posts/documents/nsfws-key-findings-report.pdf) 70% of U.S. college students indicated that they experienced financial stress, while 60% indicated that they did not have access to a financial education course or workshop in high school. Financial stress can negatively affect a student’s grades, self esteem, and ability to graduate on time. The Financial Wellness Clinic aims to reduce these negative side effects on students and the university.
