This document offers recommendations for institutions to provide students with accurate information, financial management techniques, and real-world practices to promote and increase basic, financially responsible behaviors. To develop these best practices, APSCU established a Task Force on Financial Literacy, which convened a broad group of professionals who share in the commitment to provide students with the resources to lead financially responsible lives. The methods and techniques were cultivated from member institutions that meet the needs of the extremely diverse group of prospective students interested in attending a postsecondary institution.
