Student-Paced Course





Financial Literacy for Student Athletes introduces students to the essentials of managing finances, tailored specifically for the unique challenges and opportunities faced by student athletes. Students explore the basics of budgeting, savings, investments, and taxes, with a keen focus on maximizing the potential of Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) opportunities. Through hands-on projects, students will learn to navigate the financial landscape with confidence, from evaluating the real cost of expenditures versus the power of investment, to crafting strategies for financial independence and wealth building. Emphasizing practical applications, the curriculum is designed to equip young athletes with the tools to make informed financial decisions, ensuring they are well-prepared not only for their collegiate careers but for life beyond the sports arena.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Student-Paced course is a time-flexible course format that empowers students to complete rigorous and connected learning experiences while accommodating significant outside commitments, including travel, athletics, internships and camp. Students have full access to course materials and activities throughout the term. They work closely with teachers to set individualized weekly benchmarks to create accountability and build consistency. Students interact with teachers and peers via discussion threads, collaborative readings, video posts and other media. Students have the opportunity to meet live for orientation and introduction at start of term, progress check at midterm, and culminating presentations at end of term.
