Financial Therapy Certificate Courses

The financial therapy graduate certificate program consists of 4 courses for a total of 12 semester credit hours. Students are not required to take the courses sequentially. Courses are offered every 8 weeks in the fall and spring, and in the summer.

We have rolling admissions, so students can start at multiple times throughout the year: August, October, January, March, and June. We strongly recommend that prospective students apply at least 4 weeks before the next class starts to allow time for processing paperwork.

Please contact us for more details.
