SALTSALT® was created by American Student Assistance® (ASA), a nonprofit with 50+ years of experience helping millions of students make better decisions about paying for and paying back the cost of their education. Stark State partnered with SALT® to develop financial competencies in college students and alumni.

What’s SALT? 

SALT is a free, nonprofit-backed educational program that helps every student who wants a college degree to get it in a financially responsible way.

Why Is It Called “SALT”?

Back in the day (way, way back in the day), salt was the universal currency. It’s why SALT goes back to basics to give you universal info and smart strategies to help you take control of your money.
