Special Programs

Complementing your financial services education.

In addition to studying for a degree or professional designation, students also come to The American College of Financial services to other special education opportunites. As needed, The College makes special programs available to the public. These special education opportunities typically tie-in to an existing designation or degree program, but can be enrolled in as a standalone program. Students who complete a special education program may be able to earn credit toward a designation or degree program at The College. Please speak with a Professional Education Counselor for more information.
