NewStart for Financial Success

— filed under: ,

NewStart for Financial Success is a trusted debted education program offered by Ohio State University Extension

If you've filed for bankruptcy, you know you need to complete a financial education class before your case is discharged. That's why we offer New Start for Financial Success. The two-hour class will allow you to meet the bankruptcy law's post-filing debtor education requirement and give you a fresh, new start to financial freedom. Take charge of your money and begin the path toward financial freedom.

Upon completing the class, you'll get the Certificate of Completion required by the bankruptcy court, as well as helpful money management tools you can begin using at once.

Please note: Before you file bankruptcy, you must complete credit counseling from an approved provider; debtor education must take place after you file and before your discharge date. New Start is a debtor education course. OSU Extension does not offer credit counseling.
