FPCP is a noncredit program that can be completed in about 15 months. The program is being offered at the Frostburg main campus as well as the Hagerstown Center using Distance Education (interactive video) technology. Required courses are offered on a rotating basis in four eight-week terms, annually. 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. Financial planning is a rapidly growing field that serves the needs of individuals in all income groups.
