At Dean College, we believe in giving our students a well-rounded education in and out of the classroom—and in helping you achieve your future financial success.

Financial Literacy 

We are pleased to present you with a glossary of financial aid terms to assist you with the financial aid process and to better understand your awards and if applicable, student loans.

We also find it imperative that students have at the very least a basic understanding of the principles of financial literacy. It is our goal to educate our students, so they can make better-informed decisions while they are in school and after they have graduated.

That is why we have teamed up with Inceptia to offer Financial Avenue – an education program that helps students build money skills for life. Dean is giving this program to our students for FREE, and we recommend that all students sign up. 

Inceptia can help you explore a wide variety of possibilities such as alternative repayment plans, deferment, consolidation, discharge, forgiveness, and forbearance options. Inceptia will stay in touch with you via phone calls, letters, and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your issues.
