Course Description

Course Structure

Get involved.

Wi$eUp is a financial education program designed for Generation X and Y Women. It was developed by the U.S. Department of Labor Women's Bureau in support of the Department of Labor's Strengthening the Family Initiative. The Wi$eUp curriculum was developed by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service under contract with the Women's Bureau.

Take control of your financial situation.

The Wi$eUp course offers help with straightening your files and records, analyzing your spending and setting financial goals, building a realistic budget, credit and the evaluation of a credit report, creating an emergency fund and set aside account, Investing 101, getting to know your retirement plan, and developing a comprehensive financial plan.

Registration is free and gives you access to the entire course. After logging in, you may complete the chapters using as much time as needed and in any order.

Determine your goals.

The Wi$eUp course includes 8 chapters and each chapter has a pre assessment and post assessment.

After finishing a chapter, you may complete a post assessment that will suggest goals for improvement in the given chapterís topic and possible planned actions to accomplish these goals. The answers you choose on the post assessment will be saved to your account and may be found on the My Financial Blueprint page. See My Financial Blueprint section for more details.

Achieve your goals.

During the course, you will be asked to input goals that will then be saved in your My Financial Blueprint page. This page will store your goals made during each chapter for later reference and reinforcement, and provides you the opportunity to review your goals and planned actions as often as you like, helping you keep track of your progress.

All information will remain entirely confidential; we do not share your personal information with anyone.

Listen to what the professionals have to say.

The Women's Bureau hosts bimonthly teleconferences or webinars on topics covered in the Wi$eUp curriculum. Each teleconference includes a presentation, followed by a question and answer session.

After each teleconference, audio files and transcripts are posted to the teleconference archive. Using these resources, you can listen to the expert advice on timely topics even if you are unable to attend a teleconference.

Ask questions, get answers.

The Wi$eUp program has assembled a network of financial experts who represent a broad cross-section of financial expertise from across the United States. These professionals have volunteered their time and knowledge to respond to questions from participants like you.
