Program Curriculum

The program curriculum consists of six required courses and one Capstone review course that delivers information about areas in financial planning for both beginning and established practitioners.  Required courses in our certificate program include:

FP100: General Principles
This course is designed to introduce students to the financial planning process. The course focuses on the general principles required to become a successful financial planner which include the ethics of the profession as well as the knowledge and skills required to prepare a financial plan.

Scholarship Opportunities

The new Kitces CFP® Certification Scholarship List was created to help individuals pursuing their CFP® certification. Millsaps College has no affiliation with any of these scholarship opportunities; the information is provided as a resource to our students.

The Else School of Management offers scholarship opportunities for current Millsaps students. To learn more, contact Bill M. Brister, Interim Director of Graduate Admissions, at

Tuition & Fees


The program cost includes $5,600 in tuition and course materials for seven classes (FP100 - FP700), plus $195 for the CFP® Board Completion Submission Fee. The $195 fee will be billed with the final course (FP700). The cost of the exam is not included in our tuition fees.




Each class is $800 (includes course materials), for a total tuition cost of $5,600 for the seven classes in the program.  Payment for each class is due a minimum of ten days prior to the first day of class. Millsaps bills for one class at a time, unless requested otherwise.


Starting in 2023, the CFP® Board will charge a $195 Per Capita Fee for every student reported by the school through the education verification system. Registered programs are required to submit completion of the coursework requirement through their education verification system for any student who has successfully completed the full registered program through their institution. This is a pass-through fee that the College will collect and pay to the CFP® Board.

The $195 Per Capita Fee will be charged to all students who are completing the program. This fee will be added to the Capstone (FP700) course invoice. The fee must be paid before the College can submit your coursework requirement to the CFP® Board.

Exceptions:  A student will not be charged the Per Capita Fee when:

  • Student completes only the Capstone course. These students must self-report to CFP® Board.

  • Students who attend multiple registered programs.  These students must self-report course completion certificates/transcripts to the CFP® Board.
