Melanie Ricker, Alexus Leonard, and Dr. Philip Tew, Department of Economics and Finance, Arkansas State University, 2105 East, Aggie Rd, Jonesboro, AR 72401

The primary reason for students to leave college is related to money. Our research will show that today's first year students not only have poor financial literacy knowledge, but they also have poor financial literacy actions. We look to see if a student's immediate family's education makes a difference in their financial literacy actions.
