Cougar Money Management Program (CMMP)

The Cougar Money Management Program (CMMP) has been created to assist students in making informed financial decisions before, during, and after college. The cost of higher education today overwhelms many families and students. One tool we offer free to all students to help overcome financial obstacles and become more financially savvy is an on-line program free of charge called SALT. Features include an online training resource that teaches students practical money management strategies for budgeting, credit management and loan advice from expert loan counselors. To find out more information about this valuable resource and how students can activate their SALT membership, visit

The Washington State Educational Access Coalition for HB 1079 Students Scorecard & Resource Guide

The Washington State Educational Access Coalition for HB 1079 Students is comprised of faculty and staff from colleges, universities and other interested organizations around the state. The Coalition's goal is to assess the services that are available to support non-United States citizens who are attending or may attend college through Washington State House Bill 1079, and educate providers, families and policymakers about the issues facing these students in higher education. The Scorecard is an administrative checklist to assess the effectiveness of providing support services to undocumented students at your institution. This tool can inform the institution’s leadership where gaps exist in current efforts. Addressing these gaps can then become the focus of institutional planning to improve access and success for undocumented students.
