The AFC® Distance Learning Program is affiliated with Texas Tech University, however registering for this program does not enroll you into the university and classify you as a full-time Texas Tech student. Since you are not a full-time student, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Skype for Business, or Adobe will not be available to download for free through the University.

The Program cost does not include the AFC® Examination. Once you have passed both educational courses, the Texas Tech Personal Finance Program will inform AFCPE® of your completion status and then you will become eligible to take your exam through an AFC® designated testing center.
