How to Get By on a Student's Income

Welcome!   This guide was created to help UW-Manitowoc students find free and low cost services for their academic and personal needs.  Although  being a college student is a wonderful experience, many find that their part-time and minimum-wage jobs make it difficult to make ends meet.  If you have emergency needs or just want to get the most for your money, check the resouces found within. 

If you find that information has changed or if you know of a useful resource or service to add, please let us know by filling out the form below. 

This guide is a project of the UW-Manitowoc Engaging Students in the First Year (ESFY) Committee:  Laura Apfelbeck, Lana Roever, Kathy Palmer, Cathy Buchner, Trudy Sirkis, Mona Wright, See Thao, Candy Lemire, Caroline Geary, and Peggy Turnbull.
