We understand that most of our students are balancing work, family and the education program. If circumstances prevent you from taking the exam at the regularly scheduled time, simply coordinate an alternative test date with your instructor.
This program has the highest quality faculty, curriculum and delivery system in the country. Students that complete this program are well positioned to successfully pass the CFP® Certification Examination and practice financial planning. In addition, this program is accelerated and allows students to complete the education requirements in nine months.
Students are issued a pass/fail based upon a weighted average of exams given during each course. Students must achieve a grade of 70% or higher to pass each course. If a student fails to achieve a 70% for a course, the student must repeat that course.
Generally, two exams are given for each course. Students will take an online mid-term and final exam for each course. The mid-term is 40% of the final grade and the final exam is worth 60%. Students must achieve a 70% for each course in order to receive a passing grade.
At the minimum, students should have speakers connected to their computer so they can hear the instructor. Ideally, students shyould purchase a headset or microphone, so they can ask questions of the instructor and use the voice-over IP technology. A good quality headset or microphone can cost about $20-50.00. Minimum requirements include Internet Explorer 6.x or Safari 10.4.x, Windows 2000 (SP4) or XP (SP1) or MacIntosh OS X 10.5 Leopard.
