Master of Science in Family Financial Planning

The Family Financial Planning Program offers a Master of Science degree (36 credit-hours) and a Graduate Certificate (18 credit-hours) in Family Financial Planning. A career in financial planning gives you the opportunity to create and deliver financial strategies to help people reach their financial goals and dreams.  Our program is offered 100% online so you can complete coursework when it's convenient for you. Most students take three years to complete the master’s program, completing one or two courses a semester.  This program is a CFP® Board-Registered program so a graduating student has completed the educational requirement to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination.

Graduate Certificate Program in Family Financial Planning

The 18 credit-hour graduate certificate program in Family Financial Planning is comprised of a sub-set of courses from the master's program and is designed for students who only want graduate coursework that meets the educational requirement to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination.
