The required courses to complete the PFFP Minor are as follows:

PFFP 310: Fundamentals of PFFP
PFFP 311: Applied Family Investment Planning & Savings Strategies
PFFP 314: Personal & Family Risk Management
PFFP 315: Applied Personal & Family Income Tax Planning (Fall course only)
PFFP 402: Personal & Family Estate Planning

The first six PFFP minor classes must be completed before PFFP 498 (Capstone)

There are no prerequisites for the first six classes. However, if a student has not taken an accounting class or does not have experience working in a financial field, it is highly recommended that they take HECL 302 or PFFP 302 prior to taking the PFFP classes.
