CMU & SALT: Your path to financial literacy
Carnegie Mellon University is committed to educating students so they are able to make the best decisions about their finances. Therefore, the university has partnered with American Student Assistance's SALT Program, a financial literacy program designed to provide students with clear and personalized information so they can easily manage their money and student loans. This is a free service being offered to CMU students.
What is SALT?
SALT was created by American Student Assistance, a nonprofit organization, to help students and alumni become more knowledgeable about financing choices and better prepared to fulfill their loan commitments.
