Don't know a lease agreement from a rental application? Need to learn the different ways to pay for rent? Curious to learn what a "credit check" actually is? Our course on Renting Your First Apartment was designed just for you.

These easy-to-understand video lessons will take you through all of the basics. From apartment searching, to touring, qualifiying for (and signing) a lease, to dealing with roommates, landlords, and neighbors.

You can eat sugary cereal for breakfast every day as an adult - but you shouldn't! Our food & health leassons will help you undertand the basics of nutrition, the importance of good sleep habits, how to save money while shopping for healthy food, and even basic meal preparation tips!

Creating healthy credit & debt habits is critical while transitioning to adulthood. You need to minimize your debt levels, ensure that you understand what credit is - develop healthy spending habits with payment cards.

You will also learn how to read your credit report, the importance of your credit score, as well as understanding the basics of interest, minimum payments, APRs, and more, we cover it all in our instructor-led lessons! 

Starting college is intimidating. So we offer a breakdown of common college terminology, explanation of different types of colleges and accreditations, and on issues like college expenses and safety on college campuses. 

From preparing for college, completing the federal student aid application (FAFSA), repaying of student loans and even getting out of default - we'll help you get a deep understanding of what you should expect!

Understanding how to manage your money and avoid wasteful spending is a critical part of adulthood.

This course wil help you calculate your pay, create a realistic budget, start an emergency fund, and even how to read the deductions on your paystub.

What Others Have Said...


College Student

One of the things I like about Life Skills courses here is that you can pick the exact lessons you want to learn instead of the whole course.  And each of the lessons are pretty cheap...that's pretty cool for my budget.


First Time Renter

​This is the first time I saw a course on how to rent an apartment...I watched 2 lessons, the one on qualifying for apartment and the other one talking about the tenant lease agreement, I have to say I learned some good info.
