I am looking to get my educational requirement for my CFP through distance learning, and I would also like the credits to apply towards a graduate degree.
The main CFP website provides a long list of providers, but doesn't list their prices. I would like to receive my education from somewhere that is inexpensive, but I would be willing to pay more for the privilege of saying that I received my education from a prestigious educator.
So, I am wondering if anyone here has any experience in getting their CFP and/or has researched the very things I am looking into and can provide advise as to which programs to consider.
I just passed the March 2014 exam. I used Boston University’s online program for the classwork, and Dalton for the final review. Boston’s program is very in depth and the teachers are good. It is a little on the pricy side, but I do believe you can receive some graduate credit towards one of their masters program. If you get 80% on all the exams they send you a certificate of financial planning. Just my two cents.
