Yes. Students are welcome to join us for online classes as long as they have access to a reliable internet connection.

CFNI Online consists of pre-recorded, high-quality video teachings. Coursework is organized and divided into 8 weeks. Each week will include 1-3 video teachings, reading assignments, and discussion questions. Most courses will include one or two essays, a midterm, and a final exam or project.

Student loans and government aid are not available to our online students. CFNI Online tuition is kept low to ensure affordability and to prevent students from incurring debt. We offer our students a payment plan, allowing them to pay 40% of their tuition by registration followed by two additional payments.

We offer five online 8-week sessions per academic year. Spring – Session A starts in January; Spring – Session B starts in March; Summer Session starts in June; Fall – Session A starts in August; and Fall – Session B starts in October.

Each online session is 8 weeks. 

Students have the option to take between 1 and 4 courses per term.

Textbook requirements are listed in each course’s syllabus. We advise students to purchase textbooks through their preferred vendor. Some manuals and workbooks will be available immediately in a downloadable PDF format. A $15.00 workbook fee will be included in the cost of the course.

Yes. CFNI Online students have the opportunity to transfer to our Dallas, Texas campus for an in-person CFNI experience. Additionally, students can transfer their credits to one of our partner schools to pursue an accredited degree. Read more about our partner schools.

We maintain a record of each completed course and the final grades for our students. If a CFNI Online student decides to transfer to on-campus, they should inform their admissions advisor. Once accepted on campus, our registrar will transfer the appropriate credits to their on-campus degree plan. For students wishing to transfer to one of our partner schools, we will provide a transcript upon request.
