Financial coaching

Support to understand your finances and answer your financial questions. Help prevent roadblocks and ensure you complete your degree.

MLFTC’s financial coaches work with you to strengthen and support your financial literacy. This includes hosting financial aid workshops for you and your parents — including sessions on how to manage student debt — and how to reduce it by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and applying for scholarships, loans and grants.

What is financial coaching?

A financial coach helps with confidence related to your ability to acquire and utilize financial resources for the purpose of paying tuition and fees associated with your enrollment, as well as ancillary costs like books, supplies, housing, meals and transportation.  

Our MLFTC financial coach does this in a variety of ways, including one-on-one consultations, emails, social media, group presentations and workshops. As we work together, your financial coach will provide you with a clear path, including the end goal and intermediary steps along the way.
