Considering the Chinese education system and the values of traditional Chinese culture, the financial education of college students has received little attention. Because the financial sector in China is developing rapidly, it is important for educators to explore the effectiveness of college students’ financial education. This was done by analyzing data collected by the Central University of Finance and Economics. Students were selected from among 10 universities in China. This study fills the above mentioned gap in the literature. Results show that students with a low level of financial literacy did not benefit from the financial literacy education provided. However, students with a medium level of financial literacy improved their score after the education. Parents' education contributed significantly and positively to students' financial literacy score. Credit card ownership was negatively associated with the level of financial literacy.
