American Student Assistance formed a new partnership with Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities to help raise awareness for the SALT program, a financial education resource that helps students and alumni develop financial literacy skills to help them manage student loan debt.
Colleges and universities that are members of HACU will have access to American Student Assistance’s My Money 101 online personal finance curriculum in English and in Spanish, a Repayment Navigator, access to one-on-one counseling with a loan specialist and blogs, articles, videos and other informational materials. All of these services are part of the SALT program. The services are free for students and alumni. Member educational institutions shoulder the cost of the program.
“In line with our mission to champion Hispanic success in higher education, HACU looks forward to working with SALT to empower Hispanic students to take control of their finances, complete college and work towards a bright future long after graduation,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores.
San Antonio-based HACU represents 450 colleges and universities in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America and Spain.
