Online financial literacy courses are now being offered to high school students at no cost through the Indiana Moneywise initiative.
After starting as a pilot program in six Indiana counties during the 2016-2017 school year, Secretary of State Connie Lawson is expanding the Indiana MoneyWise Financial Education Program statewide to all Indiana high school students. The program consists of nine course modules, which take 45-50 minutes each to finish.
These web-based courses focus on banking, credit scores, consumer protection, higher education expenses, insurance and taxes, investing, payment types, renting versus owning and savings plans. The curriculum is derived from state and national financial education standards and adequately prepares students to be responsible for their financial future.
