Academics » Distance Education

Each professional learns differently. Some like the discipline and schedule of local or live online classes, and others prefer self-paced study with strong support tools. However you want to learn, The American College has a proven educational option for you. Depending on your area of study, we have three main categories of learning which are available in various combinations for our designation and degree programs:

On Your Time: Self-study

The American College's self-study option, known throughout the financial services industry for flexibility, the best textbooks, and strong results, is available for all of our core professional designation programs. Self-study is also available for many courses in our popular MSFS master's degree (including the three CAP® philanthropy designation courses) and for our CLF® leadership program. In the master's and CLF® tracks there is also a residency component to complete.

Online: Live Webinar Classes

Many of our popular courses are offered via live, instructor-led classes from your home or office PC. These interactive classes offer a convenient, time-saving way to participate in classes without needing to travel.

Onsite: Traditional Classrooms

Local NAIFA associations offer LUTCF and FSS courses in cities all across the country. You may decide to take some of your courses locally and others online.
