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.
