What Comets are saying about our services


  • “I thought the group activity, comparing credit card offers, was helpful in showing me the different options available. The different options (student, secured, checking vs savings) were presented well. I also didn't know you could get free credit reports.”
  • “The game was extremely engaging and help give a better understanding of budgeting.”
  • “This was a really helpful workshop. UTD should definitely continue providing this training and keep helping students understand financial literacy.”

Smart About Money workshop series

  • “I really liked the activities in each workshop!”
  • “I really liked the activities we did-they were very thought provoking, and I loved the level of individualization communicated.”
