College: Coggin College of Business
Degree: Bachelor of Business Admin.
Major: Financial Planning
Effective Term: Fall 2020
The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses in the right-hand column are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

The major in financial planning is designed for the student who is interested in a career in the dynamic financial services sector which includes personal financial planning, banking, insurance, and related areas. This major integrates finance, accounting, employee benefits, and insurance. The objective is to prepare the student for careers in the growing fields of financial planning. This major also emphasizes communication skills. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for the examinations leading to professional designation such as Certified Financial Planner (CFP) ® and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC). Certified Financial Planner (CFP) ® are certification marks owned by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. These marks are awarded to individuals who successfully complete the CFP ® Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.
