Student Financial Aid Tom Benza

Wake Forest Student Financial Aid believes that everyone can benefit from additional financial literacy and one of our goals is to help people make informed financial decisions. Our office exists to assist and counsel students on the intricacies of financial aid, but we also offer one-on-one financial counseling sessions with a financial aid counselor, financial workshop presentations to student groups, campus-wide educational programing, and a comprehensive online tool called CashCourse  that provides  a wealth of financial education resources.

Through CashCourse, Wake Foresters can find articles, videos, worksheets, calculators and quizzes on a variety of topics that include:

  • Budgeting and using credit and debit cards
  • Understanding financial aid
  • Understanding employee benefits and filing taxes

CashCourse is supported by the National Endowment for Financial Education, a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to improving the financial wellbeing of all Americans.  As a participating university, Wake Forest is able to offer this resource not just to our students, but to faculty and staff as well.

Any member of the Wake Forest community with an email address can setup an account to obtain financial information for every state of life.
