This literature search led to findings regarding students and financial stress, which allowed us to also address the psychological impact that financial issues can cause.

A search of Cochrane and Campbell yielded almost nothing when using student specific search terms for debt and financial education. To address the lack of findings, the scope was widened to simply financial education and knowledge, which resulted in finding a meta-analysis that included students among other portions of the population when considering financial knowledge (Miller et al., 2014). Because the meta-analysis only looked at about 4% of university based programs, it was crucial to find a program that had been launched and analyzed at the college level.
The most successful part of the search of literature provided the analysis of a program that had been created and implemented at the University of Arizona, called Credit Wise Cats (Borden et.al., 2008). It was found that the half hour seminar was effective in heightening student’s financial knowledge and intentions of engaging in more responsible practices (Borden et. al., 2008).
