Total Course Cost: $1,500
If a student intends to complete the full Professional Accounting Certificate, they will pay $1,500 for each of the 4 courses, totaling $6,000 for the certificate.
Fees are billed per semester for course(s) taken in a particular semester. Fees are the same for Florida residents, out-of-state residents, and international students.
Course fees include:
→ Access to available workshops and seminars
→ Full support: advising, tech support and financial services
→ 24/7 access to dedicated group study rooms
→ Microsoft Office 365 products
Textbooks are not included in the course fees. Students must purchase required textbooks or e-books associated with each course on a semester/term basis. Textbook information will be provided closer to the start of the semester/term by the student’s Program Coordinator.
Methods of Payment
Federal Financial Aid is only granted for degree seeking students, so it will not cover these courses. Below are the available payment options:
Payment can be made on-line via MyFAU (https://myfau.fau.edu). We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Payment may also be made online by using a personal checking/savings account “WEB CHECK.”
Students can sign up for a payment installment plan and follow the Controller’s Office’s plan for their payments of the non-degree seeking courses. You can click here to view more details on how to sign up for this.
2. Employer Reimbursement
Some companies offer fee assistance for professional development courses. For this program, we accept course fee reimbursement that is disbursed directly to the student. This means students will essentially be “self-pay” and pay their invoice with the fee reimbursement provided to them from their company.
Each company has different requirements as to what type of assistance they will provide (such as for degree seeking verses non-degree seeking), so we suggest consulting your Human Resources department for further clarification.
3. Private Lending
Private, credit-based lending is accepted by the university to assist students with covering full or partial course fees. Lending companies include banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Students are advised to consult with the lending company regarding specific eligibility requirements, interest rates, disbursement options, repayment terms, and other factors.
4. Combination of Payment Methods
Upon departmental approval, students can declare any combination of the above payment methods.
