Planning for the Future

Alumni and students can transition easily into the high demand field of financial planning now thanks to an online certificate program at Texas A&M University-Commerce. According to Dr. Nathan Harness, assistant finance professor, the program offers students a flexible alternative to prepare for the CFP® Certified Financial Planning certification examination.

“We pride ourselves in providing knowledge that goes beyond the exam and incorporate real world materials essential to developing skilled, comprehensive financial planners,” said Harness.

Unlike other programs, students can start the six-course program at anytime and work in the order that they feel comfortable. Students who enroll in the program by December 2011 will also be exempt from completing a capstone course, a CFP requirement beginning in 2012.
