Smart About Money

During their UMass college career, students experience many financial “firsts.” Smart About Money (SAM), a financial wellness program administered by the Office of the Bursar, is here to help. SAM provides UMass Amherst students with student-centered financial literacy services and programs to help them gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to make important, well-informed decisions related to personal financial matters.
