The University of Texas at Arlington’s Financial Literacy and Personal Finance program is dedicated to spreading the knowledge and skills everyone needs to navigate all stages of life. We are passionate in these efforts, as we strive to educate individuals on not only how to avoid the pitfalls that can often arise, but also how to save for the present and future, how to take advantage of the resources that are available, and how to equip each individual with the skills needed to enrich their lives.

  • Retirement (401k, IRAs, and more)
