Press Release
2020 Marks Seventh Consecutive Year of “Great Advice for Grads”, Addition of “The More You Know for Grad and Pro”

Lincoln, Neb. (March 31, 2020) – Continuing with a tradition dating back to 2014, Inceptia has published their seventh edition of "Great Advice for Grads," a free e-guide designed to help the Class of 2020 get started on the path to financial empowerment during uncertain times.


We are also pleased to publish our first companion guide for graduate and professional students, "The More You Know: Great Advice for Grad and Pro."


“Great Advice” is the product of a collaborative relationship with the personal finance site NerdWallet, featuring content from the site’s expert money authors regarding student loans, managing debt, improving credit, and general finances. “The More You Know” also includes content that is tailor-made for the post-grad set, with resources from AccessLex Institute.


With each year, the content of the e-guide becomes more and more shaped by the self-reported financial hurdles of students across the country. 2020 is no different, despite our current financial climate and worldwide challenges.


“We always strive to deliver relevant content that students are seeking,” says Carissa Uhlman, vice president of student success at Inceptia. “We know that right now, students are looking for sound advice that can be used to help them make the best-informed choices. We are happy to provide that and be a trusted source during turbulent times.”


Included in the 2020 e-guides are articles that speak to those student inquiries, including:

  • Don’t Freak Out About an Emergency Fund — Just Start One
  • Can’t Bear to Check Your Finances? Here’s Help
  • The Best Financial Advice at Every Age
  • How to Choose the Right Health Plan
