From the President...
Community colleges provide quality education and workforce training for nearly 850,000 North Carolinians. But we donít believe our work stops there. We want our students to leave our campuses prepared to seek a better quality of life, and that includes financially.

A collaborative effort of the NC Department of State Treasurer, Community College System, State Education Assistance Authority and College Foundation of North Carolina, Advanced Money Management for Community College Students was designed with one goal in mind--to support our studentsí success.

We hope this tool will help you carefully consider grant, scholarship and loan dollars that may be available to you during college as well as assist you in avoiding financial hurdles in your post-community college life. Strong financial habits must be developed and practiced over time. I am confident that Advanced Money Management will be a positive first step as you build a solid financial future.
