Financial Literacy

Financial literacy is about much more than being able to balance your checkbook, compare prices, or get a job.  It's also about gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to manage and make sound financial decisions in your everyday life.  At Oberlin we have partnered with CashCourse to provide our students with access to financial wellness resources that will foster the transmission of financial knowledge and skills, resulting in financially independent and confident students.

CashCourse can help you:

  • Develop a budget and money management skills
  • Deal with your debit and credit cards 
  • Spend wisely and manage debt
  • Prepare for success after graduation
  • Protect your credit 
  • Manage your financial aid

This service is available to our students free of charge. Log in and create your account. Click CashCourse to begin and select "register for a free account" located under the Student section: 

1. Register using your Oberlin College email
2. Select Ohio as your state
3. Select Oberlin College as your school
