Financial Education

Get access to quizzes, videos, interactive tools, and customized action plans to help demystify the world of personal finance

Green River College has teamed up with Inceptia to give you a leg up on financial education via their online program, Financial Avenue. With Financial Avenue, the idea is to provide you with smart resources to help demystify the world of personal finance. Trust us – getting a handle on your money doesn’t have to feel overwhelming or restrictive. It’s all about empowering yourself with smart basics, and planning from there.
With Inceptia’s money mascot, the Knowl, as your trusty guide, you will have access to ten online courses that take on big financial topics, including:

• Psychology of Money
• Foundations of Money
• College and Money
• FAFSA
• Loan Guidance
• Earning Money
• Credit and Protecting Your Money
• Spending and Borrowing
• Debt and Repayment
• Future of Your Money

We get it, sometimes financial education can be pretty boring and it doesn’t always make a lot of sense if you don’t know how to put your knowledge into action. But, Financial Avenue keeps you on your toes with quizzes, videos, interactive tools, and customized action plans at the end of each course. With all these tools, we’ve made it pretty easy to know exactly what you can begin doing RIGHT NOW to put your financial knowledge to good use. After all, the Knowl says there’s no time like the present.
