Course fees are to be paid in full by the first class session and failure to meet this requirement will not allow the student to continue in the course.


All courses are graded and you must earn a minimum of 70% in each course to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination and receive the UNF Certificate in Financial Planning.

If the University cancels a course, students will be entitled to a full refund or may switch into another class if they desire. To officially withdraw from class, a letter of withdrawal must be submitted to the Program Director.
