Peer Financial Counseling and Planning Program

What is PFCP?

Our mission is to provide our peers with a basic understanding of personal financial management to help them take charge and make wiser decisions when it comes to the different challenges of life and opportunities, many of which touch upon the topic of money. Many students come to college very ill-equipped to handle their personal finances. Clayton State’s Peer Financial Counseling and Planning (PFCP) program is designed to address this problem.
