- Join us for a presentation of findings from Trellis' newly released Student Financial Wellness Survey (SFWS) report. These results from the Fall 2019 semester survey provide new insights on students who work while attending college, those who support family members while in college, and other key financial behaviors (including the use of student loans, credit cards, and payday and auto title loans). Trellis’ SFWS received responses from more than 38,000 undergraduate students from 78 colleges and universities in 20 states. This presentation includes a discussion of topics specific to community colleges.
