Community Responsibility

The American College of Financial Services

Our students and designation holders are a direct reflection of The American College of Financial Services. As such we celebrate their successes, and also ask of them to adhere to the highest standards, as laid out by our trustees.

We want a designation from The College to immediately bestow confidence in those in need of a financial advisor they can trust. So we take any concerns about any of our students, past and present, very seriously and are committed to ensuring that anyone who “Carries the Shield” does so ethically. That’s our responsibility to our community. 


To underscore the importance of ethics standards for Huebner School designations, the Board of Trustees adopted a Code of Ethics in 1984. Embodied in the Code are the Professional Pledge and eight Canons.

Here you’ll find search tools to help you find advisors with the best credentials, extended descriptions of the most common designations, and tips on how to select a financial advisor. To ensure you have the the greatest confidence in your financial advisor, here you can confirm they hold advanced degrees or designations from The American College of Financial Services and are currently in good standing.

Although we are not a residential institution and we have no on-campus housing, we believe it is important to comply with the spirit of The Cleary Act regarding disclosure of crime on campus.
