Based on the guidance of public health officials and the state government, the Center for Financial Independence will be temporarily suspending in-person events and personal finance advising appointments. During this time, you may still contact our office via email and we will be happy to assist you. Information on virtual advising sessions and events will be forthcoming. Please continue to monitor our website for any updates. For additional information about how Northeastern is preparing for COVID-19, please visit

What We Do

The Center for Financial Independence educates and supports all Northeastern students on their path to financial literacy and independence while encouraging peer-to-peer knowledge creation and sharing. The Center primarily operates in three ways: hosting workshops and presentations, student mentor financial counseling, and Thrive – the personal finance incubator.




We empower students to make confident financial decisions.

Thrive delivers critical content on how to earn, manage and invest money, as well as appreciate how general market and economic conditions will impact students’ financial decisions throughout their lives.
