Headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska, Inceptia’s mission is very simple: to support schools as they arm students with the knowledge needed to become financially responsible adults. Moving boldly into the future without accumulating the burden of debt and default.
The certification program was developed in collaboration with authors and faculty members from East Carolina University’s nationally recognized College of Business. The program is self-contained and self-paced, allowing education professionals to go through the process on their own schedules. Users are exposed to a multimedia environment, incorporating textbook, pre-assessment and final test, videos, calculators and an interactive community in the learning process. Chapters cover a broad spectrum of personal financial topics, including budgeting, paying for college, debt management and taxes. This allows users to gain rich knowledge on the issues that affect all students, from those entering college to those preparing for graduation.

Financial Avenue covers topics ranging from credit and budgeting to paying for college and understanding insurance.
Having face time with an accredited financial counselor not
only provides students with immediate answers to their questions, but it also
gives them an interactive learning environment that helps them retain what
they’ve learned. Schools can choose one of a variety of financial topics that
will be covered during our on-site sessions. These topics will be brought to
life by our expert counselors, giving students the practical knowledge they
need to make wise financial decisions—now and in the future.
We are looking to build awareness of our initiatives and expand the reach and distribution of our program materials.
