FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if I miss a deadline?

Missing a deadline means that there will be no guarantee that you will have your marks back in time to write CFP Exam in June. If a deadline is missed, there will be late fees charged to continue with the course.  If you take longer than to the end of March to complete any assignment, you will have to re-enroll in the course.

What if I fail a component?

You need a cumulative 60% to pass. No one component requires a passing grade on its own. If you do fail any component, you will be allowed to resubmit it for grading a second time. However, if you resubmit it after the deadlines, as published above, there can be no guarantee that you will have your marks in time for CFP Exam in June. For that reason, students are encouraged to complete all work prior to the published deadlines.

What if I don't complete a component?

All components must be completed in order to receive a passing grade. If I (Jason) feel that you have not met FPSC’s standard, that section will be marked as incomplete and you will not be able to proceed to the CFP Exam.

What if I can't make a webinar or seminar?

Attendance on webinars is mandatory. If you miss a webinar you will be able to access the recording later in Moodle later. If you do miss a webinar, and watch it later, you will have to let Jason know. Capstone course work will not be graded until the student is caught up on all available webinars.
