What do you do when a student needs help improving their credit score? Or wants help with investing or retirement planning? What about when they need advice about buying their first home?

Graduate and professional students face unique financial challenges. Financial aid offices across the country encounter students like these every day, but too often we are unable to provide counseling, as their needs stretch beyond the services we offer. In order to provide the best possible customer service and counseling, we need to develop partnerships with financial experts who can help our students when we cannot.
