CSTAR:  College Skills that Achieve Results

Money management is a great skillset for anyone to have, no matter when you begin your financial literacy journey. UAS Sitka is excited to provide you with access to iGrad, putting the resources you need at your fingertips while navigating your way through college classes, degree completion, graduation, and even beyond as you transition into the workforce or make a career change.

iGrad:  Your Personalized Financial Wellness Program

iGrad is a personalized financial literacy online program with information, training modules and resources for individuals at different life stages. Users create a profile which includes a financial wellness and money personality assessment. Based on your situation and preferences, iGrad will make recommendations for further training in areas that are useful for you!

Become a UAS Finance RockStar

The CSTAR Challenge incentive program uses iGrad activities to guide you through tasks like finding scholarships, staying eligible for student aid, and choosing a degree that will deliver job satisfaction and the best chance to pay back college debt.

Once you've mastered paying for college you can look ahead! What will be the most effective ways to start paying back your college debt? How will loan payments affect your life after college? How can college debt help you develop and improve your credit score? Find out by taking your financial literacy skills to the RockStar level!

Earn CSTAR Rewards

Participating in the CSTAR Challenge involves completing a list of tasks assigned to each level in the College Skills that Achieve Results financial literacy program (Student with Financial Aid) (Self-financing Student). As you progress through the iGrad tools, activities, and short courses, you will earn a CSTAR Reward at each level.
