Financial Literacy Seminar:
The Financial Literacy Seminar is a part of every freshman’s first quarter schedule. At Life West, we feel it is essential that our students have a strong foundation in budgeting, developing financial strategies and overall management of their finances. Later in the program the courses in the business curriculum will offer additional information on financial planning tailored to chiropractic students.
In preparation for your chiropractic education, we strongly recommend paying off any consumer debts, such as car payments, credit cards, etc. It is a good idea to start now to develop a financial plan for the future. Managing your money now will help ease the burden in the future. It is beneficial to know your credit history and check it yearly to insure the accuracy of the reports.
SALT Financial Literacy Program
The college has teamed up with SALT, a new membership program (free) to assist our students in managing their money and student loans. SALT was created by American Student Assistance, a nonprofit organization to help students become more financially savvy. Activating the SALT membership allows our students to take advantage of members-only features, like: interactive money management tools that show how to take control of your finances; loan advice from SALT’s expert counselors; and My Money 101 – a self-faced, online resource that teaches money management strategies for budgeting, credits cards, banking and more. Prospective students may active a SALT membership by visiting: www.saltmoney.org/lifewest (create your account with Life Chiropractic College West as your school).
