Your credit score may be one of the most important numbers you have in life!  Join us at this informal session to find out what’s contained in your credit report, how credit bureau information generates a score and the  impact it may have on getting a loan.  Plus, you’ll have an opportunity to speak with professionals about how your credit score can work for you.


Northern Illinois University's Financial Literacy Collaborative is excited to be partnering with the DeKalb County Ca$h Coalition to bring the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's national Money Smart Week program to the community. This collaboration is bringing together many organizations across DeKalb County including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies, and the media.

Different collaborative representatives, coalition members, and members of the community will be presenting on different topics throughout DeKalb County during the week of April 5-12th. Programming covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying, estate planning, couponing, and much more.

NIU students, faculty, staff as well as community members are all welcome to attend all sessions.
