About the Center

The Student Money Management Center, a part of the Division of Finance and Administration, opened in August 2021 on the Denton campus. There is also a Maroon Money Mentor based on the Houston campus. The Center provides financial education programs and services to help students learn money management skills they can use now and in the future. Given TWU’s diverse student body, including many financially vulnerable student populations, and the goals established by the State of Texas to reduce student loan debt, we are particularly mindful of educating students on how to responsibly finance their education. Through research, assessment, and collaboration with other departments on campus, we want to be part of the solution where students can successfully navigate financial barriers and be academically successful.
