The Summer Institute is the face-to-face component of the HSC 6100 Teaching Personal Finance graduate course offered during the summer term at Middle Tennessee State University. The remaining portion of HSC 6100 will be taught on-line. HSC 6100 Teaching Personal Finance is currently funded by the Financial Education for College Access and Success (FECAS) grant through 2014. A major component of this grant is to provide personal finance middle and high school teachers with instructional materials and strategies related to the state mandated personal finance curriculum with added materials to assist with college access and success. Experienced and new teachers of personal finance are invited! Students will receive 3 FREE hours of graduate credit and an $850 stipend upon satisfactory completion of all course requirements as outlined in the course syllabus (to be provided on the first day of class, Summer Institute).

The Financial Education for College Access & Success (FECAS) grant seeks to prepare educators to help middle and high school students navigate personal finance decisions and goals, analyze opportunities related to the costs and benefits of postsecondary education, and develop a skill set for success in postsecondary education.
