Trellis’ Student Financial Wellness Survey (SFWS) is a comprehensive campus survey of the financial issues that can threaten students’ academic success. The SFWS measures many key dimensions of financial wellness – not only students’ basic needs security, but also their financial vulnerabilities and behaviors, perceptions of institutional support/awareness, debt, financial education, and many more topics.
