Financial Literacy with Saltâ„¢

Oakton has partnered with Salt™, a free online financial literacy tool, to help you manage your money and loans more effectively.

Salt™?  What’s that?

Since the days when Roman soldiers were paid in Salt, people have had to deal with making, saving, and spending money. Now, the nonprofit American Student Assistance organization has created Salt™ to help students become more financially savvy.
