Dave Ramsey Chooses Rochester College as Education Partner

Dave Ramsey, personal money-management expert and national radio personality, has chosen Rochester College as his educational partner for an online, three-credit personal finance management course.

“Studies show that more and more college students are asking for courses in personal financial management. For one thing, some of them have watched their older brothers and sisters graduate from college with huge debts hanging over them from their college years. We need to provide them information that can put their financial lives on a responsible course,” Ramsey said. “Rochester College is an excellent Christian College. Its president is a long-time friend of mine.”

In the course, participants will learn how to make sound financial decisions for life, including topics such as savings, budgeting, debt, investment, insurance, real estate and other financial issues.

“College students are telling us that they want financial education programs so they can learn how to avoid debt, pay for college and manage their money well,” said Dr. Rubel Shelly, president of Rochester College. “Dave Ramsey is on a mission to help Americans take control of their finances, and we’re thrilled to partner with him now to let students study personal finance with the man who ‘wrote the book’ on achieving financial peace.”

Based upon Ramsey’s “Foundations in Personal Finance” material, the course will be taught by Dr. Ken Johnson, an experienced accountant, professor and higher education administrator.  “Dr. Johnson has had a long, successful career in both finance and education,” Shelly said. “He’s the perfect person to team with Dave Ramsey to teach young people the basics of personal financial management.”

Although this is a course designed for college students, it is open to high school juniors and seniors for early-college credit. The seven-week course will be fully transferrable. The first two classes are forming for the fall semester. Space will be limited. For more information or to register, go to www.rc.edu/daveramsey.

Founded in 1959, Rochester College is an accredited, independent liberal arts college that pursues academic excellence in a Christian setting. With more than 1,000 students, both in traditional and adult learning programs, RC offers bachelor’s degree programs at four locations and a master’s degree in religious education.
