GradReady Financial Education Portal

Averett University is now providing a new tool to help students, prospective students, and other members of the AU community boost their financial literacy and make wise choices as they pay for college.

The University partnered with NorthStar Education Services to give students access to GradReady, a portal with educational videos and interactive financial tools geared towards students and graduates. The AU portal can be accessed at

GradReady includes three content tracks that registered users can follow. A track about paying for college includes informational videos about loans, grants, and other forms of financial aid and has tools that help students plan how to pay for college. A money management path allows students to develop a budget based on the income they can expect from their anticipated careers and learn more about how sound spending habits improve financial standing. The final track focuses on student loan repayment plans.BannerAds-GR2
