Paying for Your Higher Education

Are you unsure of how you’re going to budget for school and stay on top of your other financial responsibilities? Come to this free workshop to learn more about defining your wants versus needs, establishing financial priorities, and creating a budget! We’ll also provide other resources. This workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

How to Budget and Plan as a Student

Is this your first time in college? Are you returning to school after years of real life experience? When attending school, your finances must be in line with your goals and priorities. It can be tough knowing what will affect your budget. From lab fees and books to course fees and supplies, come to this workshop to get your mind right when it comes to understanding the financial realities of being a part-time or full time student. This workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

Picking a Degree that Pays for Itself

If you intend to immediately enter the workforce upon completing your college degree, this workshop is for you! For those students who aren’t quite sure what career path they would like to pursue, this workshop will give you data on job placement numbers and the success rate of certain degrees and certificate programs offered by TMCC. We’ll help you calculate what you need to earn as a salary when you graduate to meet your expenses, especially if those expenses include student loan debt. This workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

Scholarships, Grants and You

Looking for ways to pay for school? Don’t want to go into debt with student loans? Come to this free workshop to learn all about applying for scholarships and grants! We’ll help you start to brainstorm and show you free resources available to you! This workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

Understanding Student Loans

Would you like to know more about student loans? Varying interest rates, default consequences, requirements and more can be scary and confusing. If you are thinking about applying for a student loan, attend this free workshop first so you are fully aware of all they entail! This workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

My Spending Habits

Do you find yourself suddenly spending through your paycheck almost the same day you got it? Are you an impulse buyer? Have you ever tracked your purchases to see just where your money goes? This workshop describes how we create habits and how those habits can be changed. Then we connect habits to spending to show you how you can break bad habits and form new ones! This workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

How to Prevent Identity Theft

This workshop was created in collaboration with the TMCC Police Department! We have information on different ways your identity may be compromised without you even knowing it. We’ll share national data, trends, and tips to help you stay safe. This free workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.

Credit Reports and Credit Scores de-Mystified

Did you know whether or not you pay your bills on time can impact your credit score? Did you know you can obtain a free credit report once a year from three different agencies? If you are at a loss as to what makes up your credit score, how to read your credit report, and why this is important, come to this free workshop! This free workshop is presented to you by the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students (FLAMES) through a grant from USAFunds.
