The FYE 105: Financial Literacy Curriculum Unit

The FYE 105: Financial Literacy Curriculum Unit was developed for use in a First-Year Experience course to provide students with an understanding of: the relationship between human capital development and potential income and the chances of staying employed; budgeting; credit cards; and credit rights and responsibilities. The curriculum was implemented in an urban community college FYE course and was successful (view the working paper). We provide the curriculum for others who may wish to use it in a similar course.
