Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy & Debt Management

SUNY Delhi wants all of our students to become “Dollar Scholars” and be confident in managing their money, planning for the future, and create healthy financial habits. Want to be a Dollar Scholar? Contact us to learn how make your Bronco Bucks and Delhi Dollars last the whole semester, learn about taking out a credit card, getting ready for life after graduation, and more.

The Division of Student Life manages a Financial Literacy workgroup who oversees the Dollar Scholars program. The program was introduced during the Fall 2019 semester and will continue to evolve and increase programming and resources. The workgroup is made up of faculty and staff who are willing to meet with classes, departments, clubs, etc. to talk to students about the basics on managing their money.
