This paper reports a study conducted among college freshmen attending a Research 1 university. The primary research question was how exposure to high school personal finance education in a state with a personal finance education mandate influenced students’ financial knowledge. In a hierarchical regression analysis, variables that measured whether students’ high school personal finance education experience was influenced by the mandate explained an additional 1.7% of the variance in financial knowledge; the base model, which included gender and college major, explained 3.6%. Students’ responsibility for their use of financial services (credit cards, debit cards, and savings and investments) contributed an additional 3.4% to explaining the variance.
