Study on Collegiate Financial Wellness

The Study on Collegiate Financial Wellness (SCFW), previously titled the National Student Financial Wellness Study, is a multi-institutional survey of college students that examines the financial attitudes, practices and knowledge of students from all types of institutions of higher education across the United States via an online survey. The survey was first administered in 2014, followed by a 2017 administration surveying 18,000+ students at 65 institutions. The next survey administrations will occur in February 2020 and February 2023.
