You may complete this short course, at your convenience, during one sitting or by taking one or more modules over a period of time.  It is really very user friendly.  Sign up today and complete it before the end of the semester!  You may access this short course through Blackboard at https://famu.blackboard.com and click on “Community” to find the course, RFL001 Financial Literacy Course.
