 Certificate in Personal Financial Planning

Course Codes: EXE FP100 (General Principles); EXE FP200 (Insurance Planning); EXE FP300 (Investment Planning); EXE FP400 (Income Tax); EXE FP500 (Retirement Planning); EXE FP600 (Estate Planning); EXE FP700 (CFP Case Study/Capstone)

Partner: Zahn Associates, Inc. (ZAHN)

Details: University of Dallas has partnered with Zahn Associates, Inc. to offer a Certificate in Personal Financial Planning. This certificate is issued by the University of Dallas Center for Executive Education, and not co-branded. To earn the certificate students must complete seven courses (EXE FP100 – EXE FP700). Attendance is mandatory in the program to reach the 272 required contact hours. University of Dallas purchases sets of course materials per student from Zahn Associates, Inc.; ZAHN also provides an online Student Portal which they manage. The Student Portal components include recorded videos, quizzes, and exams.

MISSING CLASS – MAKE UP REQUIREMENTS

If a student must be absent at any time during the program, the student is required to make up the missed lessons and time through the ZAHN Student Portal. Missed lessons cost $25.00 per lesson. This fee is paid to ZAHN. This fee is not covered by the tuition fee of the class. There is an instructor, provided by Zahn, to guide the students if they have questions. Lessons must be completed before returning to class the next week.

Estimated Cost – Make Up Requirements

The estimated addition cost is variable. Each class has 10 lessons, multiple case studies, and a final exam. Weeks 1 and 2 each review four lessons, weeks 3 and 4 cover the remaining lessons and case studies.

  • If a student misses an entire weekend of class in weeks 1 or 2, the cost would be up to $100.
  • If a student misses an entire weekend of class in weeks 3 or 4, the cost would be between $25 and $50.
  • Missing the final exam does not require a fee; however, the student must schedule a time with the professor to take the missed final exam. This time will be subject to availability.

SPECIAL LIMITATION ON MAKE UP REQUIREMENTS

The final two classes in the Certificate in Financial Planning program are EXE FP600 and EXE FP700. Students may not miss any class time during these final classes. If a student must miss time, they are required to take the courses online through the Zahn Online Program. Students who start in person and miss time, will be required to transfer to the Zahn Online Program to complete that class. NOTE: This requires students to start the entire course over from the beginning.

Rationale of Limitation:  The content for the final two classes is different in the Zahn Online Program from the program held in person at University of Dallas. There are no individual lesson videos available which can make up the missed lessons and time.

Cost of Transferring to Zahn Online Program

The cost of taking either FP600 and/or FP700 in the Zahn Online Program is as follows:

FP600: The cost to complete FP600 in the Zahn Online Program is $595.00

FP700: The cost to complete FP700 in the Zahn Online Program is $695.00

These costs are in lieu of the tuition fee to the University of Dallas.

ZAHN ONLINE PROGRAM

A student can elect to take any class FP100 – FP700 in the Zahn Online Program and have it transfer into the University of Dallas program for completion purposes. University of Dallas and ZAHN encourage students who will miss more than one week of classes/lessons to take that class in the Zahn Online Program. This allows the student to have a more cohesive learning experience. We have noticed an 8-10% grade reduction when students miss more than one week of class.

Process: Students will contact UD Staff to initiate the transfer to the Zahn Online Program for any class. UD Staff will assist in the transfer, and confirm the student will be returning to the UD Program after that course. Students who elect to take a course with ZAHN will pay ZAHN for the course in lieu of a tuition payment to UD. UD Staff will coordinate a return to the UD program and gather appropriate documentation (grade and course certificate) for student records. Students must complete the online class before starting the next class in the program.

Cost: The cost is variable, and is paid directly to ZAHN. This fee replaces the tuition fee to University of Dallas. This process is allowed as a benefit to the student during this intensive 10-month program.

FP100: $595.00

FP200: $595.00

FP300: $595.00

FP400: $595.00

FP500: $595.00

FP600: $595.00

FP700: $695.00

EARNING THE CERTIFICATE AND CERTIFICATE BENEFITS

Completion of this program allows students to earn the Certificate in Financial Planning, and the student’s completion is also submitted to the CFP Board as verification the student has completed a CFP Board approved and registered program. This education verification completes one of the criteria a student must meet to sit for the Certified Financial Planner™ exam. University of Dallas does not issue the CFP® certification. The cost of the exam is not included in our tuition fees.

Students with prior coursework from other institutions can still earn this certificate. UD requires a student to complete four of the seven classes within our program, which includes FP700.
