Hoos on a Budget

Do you feel like you’re constantly running out of money and have no idea where it went?  Are you tired of feeling like you have no control over your spending?  Is credit card debt a source of worry for you?  If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, why not join us in Room 204 of the Georges Student Center on Wednesday, November 7th from 7:30-8:30pm for a crash course in setting up a spending plan (aka, “a budget”) for yourself?  We’ll help you understand how a plan just might be a real help to you and not a drag on your lifestyle.

Student Financial Services staff will guide you through the process figuring out how to:

  • Set realistic goals
  • Identify your income and expenses
  • Separate needs from wants
  • Outline a plan that fits you
  • Set a timeline for when and how you will put your plan to work for you
  • Start thinking about how you’ll set yourself up for success in sticking to your plan

This session is absolutely free, and pizza will be provided.  So, there you go, a free meal!  You’re already making good financial choices!  Bring a friend, too!

Financial Aid Filing Events

Come to the Georges Student Center from 5-8pm on Tuesday, January 22nd (pending the UVA Men's Basketball schedule for this date), to get expert help in completing your 2019-2020 FAFSA and/or CSS/Profile.  Both of these forms are available now, so why wait?  Bring all the relevant tax documents for 2017 (Parent and student 1040 tax forms and W-2 forms), and we'll help you get this important task done now so that it won't be looming over you in February.

Co-sponsored with the Office of the Dean of Students, there will be pizza available at the event, too!

Can't make this one?  We'll have an additional event in mid-February.
