SFS Outreach Services

The Outreach Coordinators for the MUS - Office of Student Financial Services are committed to you and your students. Our mission is to provide information on state aid; federal financial aid; financial literacy; as well as promote access, retention, and completion.

During these difficult economic times, financial literacy is an issue that commands attention to ensure students are adequately organizing finances for their education. Building awareness through improved financial literacy education and emphasizing the importance of financial responsibility will help students avoid the serious consequences resulting from poorly managed personal finances.

Our Financial Literacy Program helps students learn key skills for financial success, and assists professionals with meeting their financial literacy requirements by providing a variety of online and in person resources.
