Required courses are offered on a rotating basis in five eight-week terms, annually. Classes are held on Saturdays in order to accommodate the work schedules of enrolling students. Courses are taught at the junior or senior undergraduate level and the pace of each course is intensive. Completion of Frostburg’s CFP Board-registered FPCP will fulfill the educational requirements and enable students to sit for the CFP ® Examination.
FPCP invites all working professionals in insurance, banking, investments, accounting, law and other finance-based businesses, current students in business, accounting, and economics, as well as individuals interested in switching careers to consider enrolling in the program.
