MATC Students, Alumni Have Access to New Financial Literacy Program

MATC students and recent graduates now have access to SALT, a new, free financial literacy program designed to increase financial empowerment. SALT combines online services and offline interactions that offer decision making support, engaging content and one-on-one loan repayment guidance in a simple, useful and straightforward manner.

SALT is an industry-leading program that provides students and alumni a number of resources, including:
• Real world money skills
• Practical and successful financial guidelines
• Tools for managing loans and finding scholarships and jobs
• Expert counseling and other essential support 

“Partnering with SALT will benefit our students and alumni,” said Jerry Manz, MATC director of Financial Aid. “Our students can take advantage of expanded and enhanced counseling to help ensure they are on the right track financially. One of the goals of the relationship with SALT is a reduction in our student loan default rates, which has a negative impact on the college and our students.” 

Students and alumni recently were emailed SALT registration information. For more information, contact the MATC Financial Aid Office at 414-297-6282.
