M.S. students must earn a C or better in all courses unless otherwise noted. Students must average a 3.0 GPA to maintain good standing with the Graduate School and to graduate.

Graduate degree programs in personal financial planning are registered by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board). The term CFP® identifies a financial planning professional who has met educational standards, passed the CFP® Certification Examination, satisfied a work experience requirement, and agreed to the CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility. The terms CFP® and Certified Financial Planner™ represent the most respected professional certification in the financial planning profession.

Admission. Applicants may apply to a graduate program by visiting the Graduate School website or by visiting the School of Personal Financial Planning website. Applicants will have two options to choose from when completing their application: on-campus and synchronous online.

About the Personal Financial Planning Master’s Program


The non-thesis Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning requires a minimum of 36 hours. Appropriate leveling coursework may be required.

Dual Degrees. Personal Financial Planning offers the following dual graduate degrees:

  • Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning / Master of Science in Accounting  
  • Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning / Doctor of Jurisprudence 

Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Program. The accelerated bachelor’s to master’s degree program allows academically capable students to accelerate their undergraduate degree programs, begin graduate work in their fourth year, and finish both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a total of approximately five-and-a-half years. This is accomplished by allowing 9 hours of graduate coursework in personal financial planning to count toward both the undergraduate degree and the master’s degree.
