Oglethorpe University's CFP® certification education program provides students with the knowledge needed to meet the educational requirements of the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. (CFP Board). It also provides existing and future financial professionals with the skills necessary to provide competent, ethical and comprehensive personal financial planning services. Students include existing financial service professionals, CPAs and attorneys who wish to supplement their existing knowledge and skills, as well as, individuals who are interested in changing careers or are seeking personal wealth management education.

The Financial Planner Program at Oglethorpe University offers a schedule that will allow students to complete their studies in approximately 16 months. During the 16 month period our instructors (who are active members of Atlanta's financial services community), will cover the eight major Job Task Domains in seven course modules: Fundamentals of Financial Planning, Tax Planning, Insurance, Investments, Retirement, Estate Planning, and Financial Plan Development (Capstone). Following successful completion of all courses, students are eligible to apply and sit for the CFP Board Exam. The CFP Board Exams are offered in March, July, and November of each year; our program's schedule is designed to allow for enough time for a review course before taking the exam.

For more information or questions, please call or email the Program Office:

Depending on the review course, students who complete this program may be eligible to receive a discount when enrolling in the review course of their choice for the CFP Board Exam.
