Associate in Science

The Financial Planning Associate program will enable you to embark upon a profitable and rewarding career in financial services. One of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. is financial planning. This field is particularly strong in Jacksonville where many large financial services companies are located. Banks, insurance companies, credit unions, brokerage firms, investment advisors and financial planners are looking for qualified and motivated degree students. You have two options upon graduation from our program: seek employment as a paraplanner or in another financial services capacity; or continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Financial Planning at the University of North Florida, which accepts our program credits.

In addition to the A.S. degree program, there is a technical certificate available: Financial Para-planner.
