The Florida State University Online Certificate in Financial Planning is a comprehensive program designed to prepare students for the Certified Financial Planning Exam, and is accredited by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. (CFP Board). Our course websites are at the forefront in technological advances and have recently been updated with media enhancements to provide our students with an interactive atmosphere. As a result, we now offer short videos highlighting key points of each lecture to aid in information retention. To replicate the camaraderie found in the traditional classroom setting, our course interface hosts our Professional Forums to promote discussion about various topics within the discipline. Past students have found this feature especially helpful due to the opportunity to obtain various perspectives from other students with diverse backgrounds.
Our program's considerable reputation is due in part by our highly-knowledgeable and credentialed instructors:
The Center for Academic & Professional Development offers Florida State University alumni a 10% discount for all non-credit, online courses. In addition, the center also staffs a knowledgeable, technical support team, available to assist students with course-related issues Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
