Student loans and repayment plans aren’t always the most easily understood parts of college. More and more college students are preparing for their future by measuring their financial wellness early, and accessible money management tools such as iGrad are making it easier than ever!
iGrad helps ASU students get better at money management and make sense of their student loans. Through a series of mini-courses, iGrad helps improve the financial skills that are most important to each individual. iGrad can easily be found by logging in to your My ASU account, selecting the Finances tab, and then clicking on the ‘iGrad - Financial Wellness’ module on the right-hand side.
When you first log in to iGrad, you’ll create a financial literacy survey which will help personalize the content you see. By answering questions, iGrad gets to know you and is able to recommend financial resources that are relevant to you and your lifestyle.
One of the best parts of using iGrad is that it eliminates any fears you have about your financial situation with an easy-to-use online platform, so you feel comfortable no matter where you’re starting from in your financial journey. The iGrad community is also a great tool to engage with other people and post any questions you may have! If you need more professional help, there are student loan repayment advisors that can also engage in a real-time chat.
iGrad also has articles, videos and infographics that they post every day with important tips on topics like student loans, money and your career. They even cover more advanced topics such as investing and preparing for retirement. Additionally, users can explore calculators and track their financial wellness in real time.
It’s never too early to start preparing for your future. With iGrad, you can learn to make good financial decisions during and after college, so you never have to lose sleep over your finances again.
