Financial Literacy

Tufts University believes very strongly in educating its students about a wide variety of financial topics.

Informed students will make good choices about their futures, and will be better able to cope with the complex issues that face them upon graduation and beyond. The Office of Financial Aid is a resource for questions about general loan repayment, consolidation, Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and Income Based Repayment plans.

Our Planning for $uccess Financial Literacy Program aims to provide TUSM students with a broad financial literacy education that dives deeper than the typical debt management and loan repayment strategies. We wish for you to be financially savvy in a variety of topics—credit, budgeting, identity theft prevention, and buying a home, just to name a few—and assist you in this endeavor by offering sessions from third-party experts in these fields and delivering you quality financial tips and information.

Did you know?

A typical student borrowing federal loans can expect to pay back 167% of what they borrowed over approximately a 10 year period!  By limiting borrowing now, and paying for expenses out of pocket, students can avoid this 67% increase due to interest and fees.
