Frostburg State University to Offer Financial Planning Certificate Program

Frostburg State University is pleased to announce a new Financial Planning Certificate Program (FPCP) that will be offered starting January 2003.

Completion of Frostburg's new six-course program enables the student to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination administered by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. CFP® certification is the most prestigious certification in the financial planning industry.

The new program will be of particular interest to working professionals in insurance, banking, investments, accounting, law and other finance-based businesses. Financial planning is a rapidly growing field that serves the needs of individuals in all income groups.

Those interested in switching careers and those who are still students are also welcome.

FPCP is a noncredit program that can be completed in as little as one year. The courses are offered in five eight-week terms on Saturdays. Although there are no education prerequisites, the courses are taught at the junior or senior undergraduate level and each course is fast-paced.

The program will be offered at the Frostburg main campus as well as the Hagerstown campus. For more information, contact Program Co-Directors Dr. Jacquelynne McLellan at (301) 687-4394 or Dr. Sudhir Singh at (301) 687-4093 or send email to:
