courses for the Foundations of Financial Gerontology track in sequence. Students
retain course credit and apply these courses toward completion of the track
over a period of three (3) years.
With suitable background and/or education qualifications, courses in the Foundations track may be applied toward the Registered Financial Gerontologist® designation (RFG); a time limit will apply. The RFG designation program also involves other requirements, including a comprehensive examination, a code of ethics, and a service learning component.
