College Catalog

The College for Financial Planning’s Academic Catalog contains a summary of program offerings, course descriptions, degree requirements, student and faculty resources, and policies and procedures.

Professional Designation Application and Renewal

Many of the College’s programs offer graduates use of a professional designation upon completion of a third-party examination. Graduates must apply for use of the designation and are required to satisfy renewal requirements every 2 years.

Applications can be accessed via the student portal. Once reviewed, students will be notified via email the status of their application. Students are not eligible to use a designation until they have received formal approval of their application from the College for Financial Planning. In some instances, applications may require review by the College’s Registrar and/or Ethical Conduct Committee, which may result in extended wait times before a decision is made.

Name Change Request

The College is committed to maintaining accurate student records, including up-to-date legal student names. The following guidelines will assist students in changing their legal name on College records after you have legally changed your name. Requests will update all records, including academic transcripts. Requests for alumni will update records only; if a new certificate or diploma is required a separate order for a new document will need to be submitted. Submit a completed and signed Name Change Request Form to request your name be changed on College records. Along with your request, include legal supporting documentation. The College defines legal supporting documentation as one or more of the following: state or government issued ID (such as a driver’s license or passport), marriage certificate, divorce decree, birth certificate, social security card or court issued name change.

Withdrawal Request

To voluntarily withdraw, you must complete and sign the College for Financial Planning’s Withdrawal Form. This form must be returned by email or fax as directed on the form. Your withdrawal will be effective on the date the College receives your completed Withdrawal Form. A final grade of ‘W’ will be assigned to any withdrawn course.
