Big Ed

Avoid this pitfall: half of all college students have four or more credit cards.

The Brainerd Dispatch has a great story about the good work being done in the Lakes Region as a result of the financial literacy grant OHE awarded to Central Lakes College.

The grant is paying for financial literacy classes not only at the college, but also for dual enrollment credit at Little Falls, Brainerd and Motley.

Nancy Walters, program manager at OHE, said she will be looking for another round of grant recipients before the beginning of the next fiscal year.

The grants are funded by the College Access Challenge Grant Program, a federal program that seeks to increase the number of low-income student who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education.
