About

Overview of the Program:

 

Financial Flight Plan (FFP) is a program devoted to fostering a community of financially literate and capable students at the University of Oregon. We want to empower students to take control of their financial future. Through our variety of services, we provide lessons, resources, and advice to help students manage their money and make informed decisions regarding their finances.

 

 

FFP Topics Include:

  • Money Management
  • Budgeting
  • Responsible borrowing
  • Protecting your identity
  • Credit management
  • Studying abroad
  • Preparing for work after college
  • Navigating work benefits and salary negotiations
  • Student loan repayment

 

Workshops:

Every term, we offer rotating workshop series focusing on financial literacy topics such as budgeting, credit management, studying abroad, and loan repayment. These sessions are typically an hour long, hosted on campus, and free to all students.

Additionally, we would love to host a workshop for your class, organization, or event. This is a free service; we just strive to make our financial literacy content as accessible as possible. Please submit a workshop request and our team will be in contact with you to assess your needs and how we can increase your financial literacy.

 

 

Individual Advising:

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships employs two peer financial educators, who help lead the workshops and offer one-on-one advising. They are equipped to discuss a range of topics regarding your finances, and have a wealth of information to offer based in research and their own personal experiences. They are available individual advising Monday-Friday, so don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment today.
