UAA wants you to be in charge of your finances! The "Savvy Seawolf - Financial Literacy at UAA" initiative, part of UAA's Office of Student Financial Assistance, promotes and supports responsible and healthy financial behaviors and decisions among our UAA students and throughout the UAA community. Through a series of workshops, events, and one-on-one counseling, our goal is to help you become more savvy with your finances and make smarter choices with your money, ultimately turning you into a Savvy Seawolf!
