Center for Advancing Financial Education

The Oregon State University Center for Advancing Financial Education (CAFE), housed in the College of Business, provides research-based curriculum for all OSU students. Through workshops, training, counseling, a peer mentorship program and other resources, we support students at OSU and communities across the state.

We provide free one-on-one appointments, self-study modules, and presentations and workshops on topics such as paying for college (billing, financial aid, scholarships, resources, and more), creating a budget, post-college financial planning, and more!
