How do online classes work?
Our courses are delivered synchronously, meaning that you are able to interact with your instructor and fellow students in real time just like in a traditional classroom setting. Our program has a flexible schedule with classes meeting two nights every week. Worried about missing a class? Don’t be. All classes are recorded for playback at any time in the future.
Benefits of our live online class include:
- A sense of community: real-time interaction with the instructor and your cohorts
- It is highly motivating: scheduled meeting times helps you stay committed to your goal
- Immediate feedback: the ability to ask questions and receive instant answers
What academic support services are available for students?
We understand that lack of in-person interactions and staying motivated are two main challenges faced by online learners. To address these two challenges, we offer various academic support services, including:
- Virtual office hours
- Live online Q & A sessions
- Success coaches
Do I need a background in finance to enroll in the CFP program?
Although it certainly wouldn’t hurt, a background in finance is not required to succeed in this program.
How frequently do new cohorts start?
The program starts each year in January, March, May, July, September and November.
Can I have access to course materials after the program is over?
Yes, you have access to the program for 10 months. Upon successful completion of the program, you will have access to the program for an additional 2 months.
Who will issue the certificate?
Purdue University will issue the certificate.
The course description lists a duration of 10 months; however, when I go to register for the program, the course is less than 10 months. Why?
The course length on the registration page is only for the five courses included in the program, excluding the capstone course. With the capstone course added, the whole program is 10 months in total.
