Some of the financial certifications allow you to take some of the exams
while a student in your senior year. Some of you may have time to do this during the summer and fall as other opportunities have not materialized. This might be a good time to prepare to take one of the certification exams later in 2020 or in 2021. Having successfully passed a part of one of these exams is a definite resume booster for competitive entry-level positions.
Also, reduced fees and/or scholarships are available for students.
