Check your Financial Health

Start here to determine your current Financial Health! This short survey will assist you in determining areas where you may need additional attention or support.  

Build a Budget!

ECMC’s Monthly Budget template is an excellent way to begin tracking your spending and working towards your financial goals while in school. This budget template lives within your ECMC Student Account, meaning you can revisit your budget and make adjustments at any time!

Track Spending

Once your budget is complete, ECMC provides a “Track Spending” feature, allowing you to check in with yourself and your progress each month. You simply enter your actual spending, and the software will clearly show any differences between your current and planned spending, providing insight on changes you can make to stay within the budget you created. 

Create Checklist

The checklist tool allows you to monitor your progress towards your financial goals with small, measurable tasks. Choose from a list of suggestions from ECMC or create your own!
