Cougar Money Matters

Welcome to Cougar Money Matters.
With the support of BECU, we’ve created this site to bring together financial resources across all our campuses for all our Cougs. We know that financial stress can have a negative impact on grades, health, and student engagement, and financial decisions affect a students’ ability to remain in college and be financially secure following graduation. Our commitment to ensuring student success at WSU requires an increased focus on financial wellness.

Because Cougar success matters, Cougar Money Matters.

Cougar Money Matters is led by the Office of Academic Engagement and Student Financial Services, with collaborative partners across the WSU system.
